Monday December 7th, 2015

Lakers guard Nick Young was ejected from Sunday’s game against the Pistons for shoving Anthony Tolliver.

Early in the fourth quarter, Tolliver was called for a foul while trying to block Young’s fast-break dunk attempt, sending Young crashing to the ground. Young then lunged at Tolliver’s neck and was separated from Tolliver by Marcus Morris

Tolliver appeared to say to Young after the altercation, “It’s just a foul.”

Young played just seven minutes in the game and did not score. The Lakers lost 111–91.
