Some Nuggets news today: Denver has cut DeMarcus Cousins, only to re-sign him to a new 10-day contract today to fill the open roster spot for the Nuggets.

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
DeMarcus Cousins ejected in Brooklyn after his second technical foul. He’s picked up three technicals in three games with Denver. – 9:58 PM

Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
3 techs on Boogie in 3 games with the Nuggets. It has NOT been a good first week for Boogie. – 9:58 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
DeMarcus Cousins has been ejected. Spiked the ball to pick up his second T. – 9:58 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
DeMarcus Cousins just got ejected. – 9:57 PM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
For all intents and purposes, the bench has done its job. The Boogie + starters lineup wasn’t great, but the bench lineup was good. – 8:52 PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Game-high 11 first-half points for DeMarcus Cousins. Shot 4-10 from the field, 2-3 from distance, hauled in 5 rebounds (3 offensive). It wasn’t pretty but Denver will gladly take it. It’s offense, from the bench. – 8:52 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Boogie Cousins is up to 10 points and 4 rebounds in 8 minutes off the bench. – 8:45 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
DeMarcus Cousins now up to a *game-high* 10 points. – 8:45 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
I remember when Boogie used to dunk everything, man, now he’s missing layups at the rim – 8:34 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Oh snap, I forgot Boogie signed a deal with Denver. – 8:32 PM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Worried about Boogie. – 8:31 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
Boogie checks in for Nikola Jokic at the 5:22 mark, far earlier than usual. Jokic has two fouls. – 8:27 PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Davon Reed’s one turnover against the Pistons broke his streak of nine-straight games and 142 minutes played without a turnover. He has just five turnovers in 319 minutes this season, which is less than the seven DeMarcus Cousins has in two games. Mr. Dependable. – 6:18 PM

Jeff Stotts @InStreetClothes
Dallas sports fans are all too familiar w/ THJ’s injury. Former Mavs Roddy B & Dominique Jones sustained 5th metatarsal fractures during the 2010-11 season. Cowboys players to sustain the injury include Dez Bryant & DeMarcus Lawrence, who missed 11 games earlier this year. – 11:58 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
What a finish by Cade. Got his shoulder right into Boogie. He’s three points shy of a new career-high – 9:10 PM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
DeMarcus Cousins just committed his fifth turnover in eight minutes. – 9:02 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
After Boogie’s putback layup forced a Pistons TO, entire bench stood up and flexed. And as Boogie walked to the bench, Jokic grabbed Boogie to show him something he saw with the defense. – 7:46 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Boogie got away with a blatant hook there on Lyles – 7:45 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
Malone calls TO 25 seconds into the second quarter after Frank Jackson scores on a layup.
Lineup was Bones/Facu/Bryn/DeMarcus/ Zeke. – 7:39 PM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
📅 On this day in 2016, the @Sacramento Kings DeMarcus Cousins scored a career-high 56 points in a loss to the Hornets.
Cousins, who scored 48 points the previous game, is the only player in franchise history to score at least 45 points in consecutive games. pic.twitter.com/HrSdUhYS993:01 PM
