DeMarcus Cousins does not like Mike Dunleavy. If it wasn't clear after last year's altercation, the Kings center set the record straight on Monday.

"He’s a clown," Cousins said after posting 25 points and 16 rebounds in the Kings' 99-70 blowout over Chicago. “And he’s scared. I wouldn’t even waste my time if I ever saw him outside of the gym. He’s a clown.”

The game saw Joakim Noah ejected in a string of expletives. Last season, it was Cousins who was ejected after facing the former Warriors forward, then a member of the Milwuakee Bucks.

Cousins elbowed Dunleavy in the head after he was undercut and didn't feel like he was in the wrong.

“If you see the replay, it’s really not as hard as he acted it out to be,” Cousins said at the time. “It really wasn’t. ... I was just trying to get around the screen."
