LeBron and Stewart ejected after sparking huge brawl

A visibly angry Stewart squared up to the Lakers star. Cameras showed he had a large bloody cut near his right eye.

Stewart was repeatedly held back by team-mates and coaching staff as he tried to retaliate. He even chased LeBron from across court.

Both players were ejected from the game after an official review.

Both sets of players were involved in the brawl, including Lakers star Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook and Isaiah Stewart memes flooded social media in the aftermath, particularly as the Lakers point guard tried to protect his teammates as Stewart barrelled towards them.

People made fun of Westbrook’s ready-to-fight stance, while others memed the heck out of Isaiah Stewart who was in full on attack mode.

Westbrook didn’t realise he’d got a technical

Westbrook was asked about the technical he received during the game afterwards.

Except, he didn’t know anything about it, as the officials didn’t mention the tech to him.

Crew chief Scott Foster said after the game, “During our review for an altercation, we deemed him an escalator and not a peacemaker.”
