The NBA did not forgive the show that LeBron James e Isaiah Stewart left in the game between Lakers and Pistons, where an elbow from the Angelina star unleashed the pivot’s fury that ended with a bloody face. The incident began with Stewart’s off-the-ball foul with 9:18 left in the third quarter, during the Pistons’ 121-116 loss to the Lakers.
After all the chaos was controlled and the Pistons player was taken to the dressing rooms, the umpires decided to give James a flagrant type 2 foul and he was sent off, while Stewart received two technical fouls and sent off. This Monday, the league decided to suspend LeBron for one game, while Stewart will have two games of punishment for acting in an unsportsmanlike manner.
Stewart will serve his suspensions on Tuesday, November 23, when the Pistons host the Miami Heat, and on Wednesday, November 24, when Detroit meets the Milwaukee Bucks at the Fiserv Forum. James will serve his suspension on Tuesday, November 23, when the Lakers visit the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
