SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After taking a vicious elbow to the head from Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins, Milwaukee's Mike Dunleavy got the best revenge — using his hot shooting hand to help his team win.

Monta Ellis had 29 points and nine assists, Dunleavy scored 14 of his 16 points after being hit, and Milwaukee held off Sacramento for a 115-113 victory on Sunday night.

Defeating the Kings, who rallied from a 15-point deficit in the final four minutes, pleased Dunleavy. But so did answering Cousins' talk and physical confrontation by making four three-pointers after Cousins was ejected at the 3:26 mark of the third quarter after a flagrant 2 foul.

"I'm not going to begin to try and reason with someone like that," Dunleavy said. "I'm not even sure what I did, I thought I was just blocking him out."

The temperamental Cousins thought otherwise. After Dunleavy stepped in front of Cousins in a somewhat crouched position, he was confronted by the Kings center after play was stopped. Both Cousins and Dunleavy were called for technicals.

But that wasn't the end of it. After a timeout, the Bucks were running a play and Dunleavy wound up under the Kings basket, behind Cousins, who swung an elbow that hit Dunleavy's head. Cousins was called for the flagrant foul and ejected from the game for the fourth time this season.
