Team USA center DeMarcus Cousins and Jonas Valanciunas of Lithuania were jockeying for position under the basket in the first half of their FIBA World Cup semifinal game on Thursday. Boogie Cousins was not pleased with Valanciunas' elbow placement and after receiving a shot to the head, Cousins made a quick and confrontational move toward the Lithuanian forward. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed.

Despite getting elbowed, Cousins was the one who was called for a foul.
