LeBron James, Aaron Gordon called for double technical fouls over incident
LeBron James and Aaron Gordon were called for double technical fouls over an incident that took place during the second quarter of Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Monday night.
Gordon was guarding James with the Los Angeles Lakers leading the Denver Nuggets 43-36. Gordon hit James with an inadvertent hand to the chin. James got ticked off in response and shoved Gordon. Then James started to put his forearm to Gordon’s neck and push around Gordon with a “let’s see how you like it” type of move.
