Kyle Goon: Anthony Davis: “Everyone in the league knows LeBron is not a dirty guy.” Says that the moment he realized he had clocked Stewart, LeBron was trying to apologize and say “my bad.” Once Stewart was charging, AD says “I don’t know what he was doing, but we wasn’t going to allow that

Lakers’ Anthony Davis: “Everyone in the league knows that [LeBron James] isn’t a dirty guy. As soon as he did it, he looked back and told him, ‘My bad. I didn’t try to do it.’ I don’t know what [Isaiah Stewart] was trying to do. Nobody on our team, 1-15, was having it.” – 8:57 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Anthony Davis says the Lakers are still having problems with straight line drives and blow-bys that force the defense to rotate to early. That’s exacerbated by bad shots and turnovers on offense. He thinks the fourth quarter shows their potential. – 8:57 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
AD said the LeBron/Stewart interaction was routine at first, both guys battling for position. LeBron caught him w/one, quickly tried to apologize. “Everyone in the league knows LeBron is not a dirty guy.”
Davis said Stewart’s response was unprecedented since AD’s been in NBA. – 8:57 PM

Anthony Davis thinks the 4th quarter vs. Pistons was the “best defensive quarter of the season” thus far. – 8:56 PM

Some NBA cats go on fake, “Hold me back! Hold me back!” acts when the smoke hits the air. Isaiah Stewart was trucking cats like Billy Sims or Earl Campbell to get to LeBron. pic.twitter.com/kAGNBRMkxe8:50 PM

Bad ending for the Pistons, but fun game overall. Lakers lost LeBron, but the Pistons lost their best chance at slowing AD after Stewart’s ejection. Swung the game in LA’s favor. – 8:46 PM

Bill Oram @billoram
In the final 63 seconds of a five-point win, Anthony Davis had: four points, two blocks and two steals. – 8:46 PM

Bob Garcia @bgarciaivsports
Ugly first three quarters, but Russ and AD picked it up in the fourth in a major way. – 8:46 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
The Lakers win with a 37-17 final quarter. Anthony Davis was sensational on both ends in the fourth, while Russell Westbrook scored 15 of his 26 points in that frame. The Lakers improve to 9-9 with a needed win after a three-game slide. The big question is what happens to LeBron. – 8:45 PM

This could be a tough loss for the Pistons, who had a substantial lead going into the fourth and completely fell apart. But they have no answers for AD, he’s just imposing his will on this game – 8:37 PM

What a defensive sequence by AD. – 8:31 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Davis just erased Cunningham at the rim, then made a shot on the other end. That might do it for the Lakers in their most impressive comeback of the season — when LeBron was ejected(!!!). – 8:31 PM

Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi
What a surreal scene. Isaiah Stewart not only wanted to take on LeBron James and everyone on the Lakers but he calmly did the “it’s over, I’m done” walk off multiple times before sprinting back to get his revenge. The back door attempt at the end is crazy. pic.twitter.com/5W0wmhtOUZ8:09 PM

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Upon closer, and closer reviews, that looked like a closed fist from LeBron – 8:06 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
I guarantee at least some part of that was due to LeBron seeing that young man with a beautiful head of hair – 8:02 PM

Matt Dery @DerySpeaks
Everyone will talk about the Beef Stew/LeBron altercation. But I’ll say this.. the #Pistons are about to hang 100 on the #Lakers through 3 quarters. LA couldn’t guard Tim Boyle. – 7:58 PM

Don’t be surprised if #Pistons Isaiah Stewart is suspended multiple games — and maybe more games than LeBron James. – 7:58 PM

Would/should the Lakers without LeBron even be favored in a game on the road against the Pistons? They’re now down 13 with 13 mins left in the game. – 7:57 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
With LeBron possibly getting suspended, an 8-12 record and a six-game losing streak coming out of this road trip now seems entirely possible. – 7:54 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Lakers TV is hilarious right now. “LeBron James drew blood on Isaiah Stewart” “LeBron went over to apologize and Stewart was having none of it”. This is cable news propaganda – 7:53 PM

Suspend LeBron for a game – 7:50 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Gotta imagine a suspension is coming for Isaiah Stewart. You lose it like that and you’re gonna miss a game or two.
The real question is if LeBron James also gets a suspension or not. Flagrant 2’s pretty regularly do also come with a one-game suspension. We’ll see tomorrow! – 7:48 PM

Wild scene on the floor here finally results in Ellington shooting 1 technical FT, and Jackson 2 on the other end (for the flagrant).
Pistons lead 79-67 with 9:18 left in the 3rd Q. THT is in for LeBron.
Crowd stayed calm and patient throughout, thankfully, here in Detroit. – 7:39 PM

Frank Isola @TheFrankIsola
Isaiah Stewart, who suffered a cut to his face, is likely to get multiple game suspension. If LeBron gets a game that means he’s out vs the Knicks on Tuesday. – 7:38 PM

LeBron and Stewart both ejected. Russell Westbrook also with a technical. They’re going to try to start this game back up now… – 7:37 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Stu Lantz on our @SpectrumSN broadcast: “It’s almost like LeBron was trying to free his arm, and inadvertently clipped (Stewart),” as the two tossled for position on a rebound. – 7:36 PM

Sean Highkin @highkin
I guess it never occurred to me that LeBron getting ejected was something that could happen. – 7:36 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Isaiah Stewart is also ejected. Looks like Russ got a tech. Could not hear Scott Foster in the arena because of the uproar from the fans as soon as LeBron was ejected, followed by the PA instructing the audience NOT to throw anything on the floor. – 7:36 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Also, I’m not sure if Isaiah Stewart got tossed. I imagine so, but I couldn’t hear it after the elation of LeBron getting tossed. – 7:36 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Has LeBron ever been ejected before? – 7:36 PM

Bill Oram @billoram
Very low on the list of things that matter amid an ugly situation that could have been much worse is the fact that LeBron exits with… 10 points. The streak lives. – 7:36 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Yea, understandable to see LeBron get ejected. He basically close punched Isaiah Stewart in the eye and that caused everything. – 7:35 PM

Chris Herring @Herring_NBA
Has Bron ever gotten a Flagrant 2 before? – 7:35 PM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Wow LeBron ejected – 7:35 PM

Like I said, these two teams play a week from now. I can’t imagine Stewart and LeBron will both be available to play. – 7:34 PM

Brad Turner @BA_Turner
Crazy scene here in Detroit, where Pistons forward Isaiah Stewart was bleeding from his face an elbow from LeBron James hit him. Stewart did all he could to get after James. – 7:33 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
LeBron caught Isaiah’s face with his arm, looked like. Like, REALLY caught him. That looked awful, and explains the blood. Not sure what they will call here – 7:33 PM

ISAIAH STEWART WANTS LEBRON pic.twitter.com/gw6u84Pqr67:33 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Scott Foster just announced they’re reviewing the hostile action. The camera just replayed LeBron’s shot to Stewart’s face, and the crowd is now getting rowdy.
Might remind everyone we are in Detroit, where there’s a sensitivity to these things. – 7:32 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Just saw the replay on the jumbotron. LeBron basically closed-fist punched Isaiah Stewart during a free throw. That’s why Isaiah wanted to get him.
LeBron will get ejected. That was intentional. – 7:32 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
On the replay, it looks like LeBron James got Isaiah Stewart with an elbow or a punch.
That’s where the blood came from apparently. – 7:32 PM

Sopan Deb @SopanDeb
ahhh lebron elbowed isaiah stewart in the face on the free throw line – 7:31 PM

The whole fracas starting with LeBron hitting Stewart in the face with a closed fist on a box out on the free throw. – 7:29 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Stewart is bleeding all over the place. He just tried to go at LeBron AGAIN. – 7:28 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Something happened where Isaiah Stewart ended up on ground. He is going after LeBron and Russ. He has to be held back by several players and coaches.
There’s blood coming from his eye. – 7:27 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Isaiah Stewart got up and went for LeBron. He’s made multiple efforts to go at him. Don’t know what got him that mad. – 7:27 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
It takes until the third quarter, but LeBron is now the first Lakers starter to hit a three tonight. – 7:21 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Interesting: a second shift for Dwight in this quarter. He’s got a team-high 10 points and LeBron is still on the bench with about 3 min to go. – 6:59 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
That’s an A-plus block by #Pistons Isaiah Stewart on Anthony Davis. – 6:55 PM

Lakers lead 30-26 after the first quarter. Russ had 8 points and the team shot 54.2% from the field. Cade Cunningham had 6 points and a nice finish over AD, but is 0-for-4 from 3. – 6:35 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Pistons’ movement offensively has been good. Defense has been solid. Only difference so far has been Anthony Davis’ defense. – 6:30 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LeBron got to the rim with LAL up 6, but wasn’t able to finish, and Detroit got an open transition 3 on the other end.
Had a chance to be +8 in the Jordan-at-center lineup, instead it’s 20-17 with ‘Melo about to check in. – 6:23 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
With 3 Davis buckets right at the rim, 2 of them coming in transition, the Lakers hold an early 16-12 lead at Detroit.
Westbrook has a pair of mid-range pull-up J’s, and LeBron 2 FG’s to go with a DJ dunk.
LAL are 8 of 11, and DET 6 of 12, into the first time out. – 6:18 PM
