Los Angeles Lakers have defeated the Detroit Pistons 121-116 in an NBA game where LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart were ejected following a wild altercation.
With the Lakers down 78-66 in the 3rd quarter, LeBron hit Stewart in the face, as the pair battled for rebounding position. All hell broke loose after, as bloodied Stewart charged at James and both benches go involved to contain the situation. The Lakers superstar went over to apologize, but the angry Detroit player was having none of it. The pair were ejected after the massive brawl and the Pistons finished the quarter ahead at 99-84. But the Lakers rallied in the 4th, outscoring Detroit 37-to-17, to end a 3 game losing skid. The ejection was just the 2nd of LeBron's 19-year career. He finished with 10 points and Stewart needed 5 stitches after the game.
