A lot went down on Sunday night during the Los Angeles Lakers’ matchup against the Detroit Pistons. LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart stole the show after the pair were involved in an altercation that nearly led to an all-out brawl between the two teams. For his part, however, Rajon Rondo appeared to have kept a relatively cool head throughout the ordeal.
LeBron and Stewart were both ejected in the third quarter in what turned out to be a close encounter between the two sides. Late in the game, Rondo was caught on camera chatting it up with a courtside fan. Hilariously, the Lakers veteran then provided a bit of betting advice for the fan (h/t br_betting on Twitter):

At that point, the Lakers were up by five points with less than a minute remaining in the game. Rondo was feeling confident about his team’s chances of escaping with the victory so he decided to dish out a bit of smack talk to a random fan.
True enough, LA managed to win this one, 121-116. In LeBron’s absence, it was Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook who carried the load for the Lakers. The two superstars combined for 56 points as they led their team to their ninth win of the season.
