The game was essentially over, with the Blazers up 21 points on the Pistons with just 1:05 left. But to Detroit’s Shawne Williams, there was evidently something worth fighting for.
The nonsense began when Myers Leonard appeared to give Williams a shove in the back. Williams had words for Leonard, but got even more upset when Joel Freeland chimed in to stick up for his teammate.
