The Los Angeles Lakers fell behind on Sunday afternoon against the Detroit Pistons when things got crazy.

Just after a free throw, LeBron James threw an elbow at the Pistons’ Isaiah Stewart, and Stewart looked to retaliate.

James was assessed a flagrant-2 foul, and was therefore rejected as a result of the altercation.

The Lakers came into the contest with an 8-9 record, and they need some wins in the worst way.

They took an early six-point lead, but put forth a poor second quarter, giving up 42 points to Detroit and falling behind by double digits.

At 4-11, the Pistons have one of the league’s worst records, as well as one of the league’s worst rosters.

A loss today for the Lakers would increase their collective anxiety and bad feelings even more. They will face the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.
