LeBron Ejected In Lakers Win, Suns Ease Past Nuggets

Jonathan Grant | November 22nd, 2021

We should count ourselves a bit lucky that we’re not talking about another ‘Malice at the Palace.’ That’s because that is what could have taken place on Sunday as the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Pistons in Detroit. The home team led 77-66 in the third quarter when LeBron James drew blood from Isaiah Stewart, sending the opposing big man into a rage-filled frenzy that would lead to the ejection of both players.

Down by 11, even against a fairly poor team, it left a big hole for the Lakers to fill. But they found a way, as Anthony Davis scored 30 points and Russell Westbrook recorded a double-double by scoring 26 and dishing out ten assists. Carmelo Anthony’s 18 points from the bench in 30 minutes was also a massive factor, helping them overcome a hostile crowd to get back to .500 at 9-9. One team that isn’t anywhere near that .500 mark is the Phoenix Suns. They just keep on winning, and Sunday was yet another one to add to the list as they mercilessly took down the Denver Nuggets 126-97 for their 12th straight victory. The stage was set in the first quarter in which they put up 48, relying on a varied offensive onslaught that few others in the league can produce. Cameron Johnson finished as their leading scorer with 22, but it was a team effort as five others also got into double-digits. That makes it 13-3 for the Suns, who are scorching too hot to handle at the present time.
