Things got spicy during game 4 between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets.
LeBron James and Aaron Gordon get into a shouting match following some jostling for position down low and an inadvertent shot to James’ chin. The two needed to be separated and were both assessed technical fouls.
Gordon clipped James in the face while James was attempting to gain position in the lane. He attempted to go underneath Gordon’s arm as he attempted to post Gordon up. Gordon instead clenched James’ arm and wouldn’t let go, causing a momentary commotion. James then placed his left forearm across Gordon’s throat.
The two would dance over to the sideline before Lakers and Nuggets teammates broke it up.
NBA officials assessed the players double technical fouls. No free throws were issued, but messages were certainly sent.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
