DeMarcus Cousins and Devin Harris had to separated after getting in a shouting match during the first quarter of the Kings’ 103-102 loss to the Jazz on Thursday. Cousins, who also happened to leave Al Jefferson unguarded to help defend Harris on Jefferson’s game-winning tip-in with under a second left, sounded extra irritated when talking about the Jazz point guard after the game.

From the Sacramento Bee:

“Honestly I’m tired of the kid. I don’t know, like really I don’t know what his issue is. I’m tired of the kid, honestly. I’m tired of him.”

Cousins was then asked about the source of the friction between the two players.

“I don’t know what his issue is,” Cousins said. “But I can definitely solve it.”

I’m not sure, but I think I Cousins is tired of Harris.

Harris explained the beef thusly:

It goes back to the last game. … He’s trying to get in my head and I’m trying to get in his. I can’t let anybody push me around.

What a game for Cousins, who, in addition to his 22 points and 18 boards, also gave us this acting feat.
