Although nothing else resulted from the altercation, Knight claims that World Peace was a little too aggressive on the play. The incident occurred in the second quarter and after the game, Knight spoke to reporters and told them World Peace threw a punch during the play.

“The play needs to be reviewed because he definitely threw a punch,” Knight told reporters after the game. “It felt like he threw a punch. That’s why I reacted the way I did.

“The play was over and he grabbed me around the neck. If someone grabs you around the neck, you’re not just going to let that happen. You do what you need to get that person off you.”

The flagrant foul was World Peace’s first of the season and he has been under control ever since his elbow on James Harden of the Oklahoma City Thunder at the end of last season.

Los Angeles ended up winning the game by one point, 98-97, and notched its second consecutive victory.
