The Los Angles Lakers weren’t the only ones doing battle at Pepsi Center on Tuesday night.

Shortly following Tuesday night’s game between the Lakers and Denver Nuggets, a video popped up on social media showing a couple of Lakers fans getting into a fight with fans of the home team.

It started as a simple argument, but soon that exchange of words reached a boiling point when the Lakers fans suddenly threw jabs at the others involved.

Thankfully, arena security separated the fans and escorted them towards the exit before any more damage was done.

On the court, the Lakers took care of business by defeating the Nuggets, 105-96. The Purple and Gold had their 10-game winning streak snapped in the previous game versus the Dallas Mavericks, but they bounced back with an impressive victory over the Nuggets.

The game was a good test for the Lakers as they faced off and won against a Nuggets team that laid claim to the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference prior to Tuesday’s loss. James and Anthony Davis led the way for Los Angeles with 25 points apiece.
