The Detroit Pistons center gets fuming and tries to fight the LA Lakers star after the latter elbows the former in the eye, causing him to bleed considerably.
AceShowbiz -The Los Angeles Lakers and the Detroit Pistons’ game on Sunday night, November 21 got exceptionally heated following a confrontation between LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart. The two got ejected after being involved in a tussle.
Things started to get ugly three minutes into the third quarter when James and Stewart battled for position on a free throw. The Lakers star apparently elbowed the Pistons power forward in the eye, causing him to bleed considerably.
From there, Stewart went after James with teammates and officials trying to separate them. While the seasoned athlete was able to control himself and avoided physical confrontation, the 20-year-old wasn’t having it and repeatedly broke free of the Piston coaches, staffers and teammates to try to fight James.
In the end, the security tried to walk Stewart to the tunnel, where he sprinted away again, seemingly trying to circle the bowels of Little Caesars Arena to re-enter the floor from another tunnel to fight James. He, however, never got to re-emerge from another tunnel.
Meanwhile, the situation got audience a little tense too. After a replay was shown, the crowd booed James. The PA announcers had to remind fans to stay in their seats while also imploring them to not throw any objects at the 36-year-old when he was ejected and headed up the tunnel.
Stewart was also ejected for his actions, while Russell Westbrook was issued with a technical foul. It was the second time LeBron got ejected in his career.
As for the bloody foul, some replays from different angles showed it was more of a punch or swinging fist from James that caught Stewart in the eye.
