Point guard Malcolm Brogdon scored for the Pacers with 28 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists, while Indiana trailed 8-12 in the East.
The Lakers were behind for most of the game, only leading for the first time late in the fourth quarter, and then the Pacers made shots against Justin Holiday and Chris Duarte in the final 30 seconds of the game. Two three-pointers dragged the game into overtime.
Entering James: The 17-time All-Star player defeated the Pacers by his own advantage in overtime. He hit two three-pointers at critical moments, and the Lakers stuck to their season record and maintained 10-10 record.
Stewart was subsequently suspended for two games by the NBA for “escalating” the situation and “repeatedly and aggressively” chasing James, while James himself was suspended for one game for “recklessly hitting” the Pistons center forward in the face.
In the overtime game against the Pacers, James talked to the referee and seemed to gesture to the two fans sitting on the sidelines. The two were then escorted out by security guards from Gaine Bridgefield House.
When asked about the matter after the game, James told reporters: “Cheering and booing opponents for loyal home fans is different from not hoping that opponents will succeed. Sometimes they use obscene gestures and words to cross the line.”
“In our game, no one should tolerate this situation. I will never tell the fans, nor should the fans tell the players.”
James further clarified the circumstances of his deportation on Sunday and revealed that he had not spoken to Stewart since the incident he said was completely “accidental.”
“I apologize to him, you saw what happened afterwards,” James said.
“This is absolutely accidental. I am not that type of player. I hate seeing things escalate later. I think I should be expelled because of what happened later… But I don’t think the suspension is necessary. .”
‘A trans-epoch performance’
Putting aside the catapult drama, Lakers coach Frank Vogel is happy that his superstar is back and has witnessed “thousands of years of performance.”
“I know he wants this’W’,” Vogel said.
“He really wants to play for the Knicks. He looks forward to it every year. So to rebound tonight, defend as a quarterback and attack in his own way-this is just a performance over the years.”
