DeMarcus Cousins ejected for hitting Willy Hernangomez in head

DeMarcus Cousins

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins was ejected from Sunday night's game against Charlotte for hitting Hornets center Willy Hernangomez in the face with a closed fist.

It happened in the middle of a second period as Cousins and Hernangomez were positioning themselves for a potential rebound. Cousins first used his elbow to give himself some space, then threw his arm out like a clothesline, hitting Hernangomez in the face.

The officials reviewed the play and gave Cousins a flagrant 2, resulting in an automatic ejection.

Cousins' ejection hardly made a difference in the game as the Warriors blew out the Hornets 137-90.
