DeMarcus Cousins is one of the most feared big men in the league — both for his immense talent and penchant to lose his cool.

The latter almost happened Monday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Cousins got tangled up with Thunder center Steven Adams in the fourth quarter, almost causing the Kings All-Star to lose his balance.

Cousins wound up and almost unleashed a blow that might have ignited a brawl had he followed through.

Cousins had to be separated earlier in the game after getting into it with Kevin Durant.
