In the third quarter, LeBron James elbowed Isaiah Stewart, causing him to retaliate, and Russell Westbrook looked like he wanted a piece of the action.

James was given a flagrant 2 foul and ejected as a result. The Lakers weren’t able to respond quickly, as they remained down by double digits for the rest of the third quarter.
Westbrook had been having a bad game, but is turning it up in the fourth, as he now has 22 points, six rebounds and six assists on the night.
The Lakers are currently 8-9 and in dire need of wins to stop the bleeding, not to mention the anxiety surrounding the team in Southern California.
