Clippers News: Kings’ Isaiah Thomas Pulled Before Handshake With Chris Paul
|Jonathan Garza||Story last updated: at 5:34 pm|
Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins missed an opportunity to win the game, missing a would-be game-winning shot in a 103-102 defeat against the Los Angeles Clippers and then proceeded to grab teammate Isaiah Thomas away from Chris Paul and preventing them from shaking hands.
The anger likely stemmed from Paul’s foul of Thomas with 24 seconds to play and the Clippers up two points.
He sank them both to tie the contest before Paul drew a foul with 2.5 seconds, as he converted one.

Paul said after the game that Cousins just needed some guidance.
His double-double streak was snapped at 13 games as he scored 22 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists.
The Kings were clearly frustrated and fall to 4-8 on the season.
