PLAYERS: Vince Carter
TEAMS: Dallas Mavericks
DeMarcus Cousins earned his second ejection of the season when he was called for the Flagrant 2 foul on Vince Carter in an overtime loss to the Mavericks on Thursday. The call was initially ruled a common foul, but was then changed to a Flagrant 1, reviewed, and switched again to a more severe Flagrant 2 and automatic ejection. He now leads the league with 2 ejections on the year. You have to wonder watching the replay if his reputation had anything to do with the ultimate ruling, you be the judge:
