The biggest talking point of the game was Joakim Noah's swear filled ejection from the game, but another rivalry was taking place on the court.
You see Demarcus Cousins of the Kings and Mike Dunleavy of the Bulls really don't like each other. They generally behaved themselves on the pine though with a push from Dunleavy being the only evidence of bad blood between the two.
But it was after the game that Cousins really spoke out. As you can see in the above video from 'Cowbell Kingdom', Cousins call the Bulls man "a clown."
The bad blood stems back to last season, where Cousins was undercut by Dunleavy - then playing for the Bucks - who he said did it on purpose, before Cousins was ejected for swinging an elbow at Dunleavy in a later play.
Demarcus certainly came out of this encounter on top however, he finished with a game-high 25 points (on 8-for-15 shooting), 16 rebounds and four assists in his first game back after missing time with an ankle injury.
