Two fans were ejected for allegedly taunting LeBron James about his son.
LeBron's Los Angeles Lakers ended up beating the Indiana Pacers 126-116, but the game was marred when security was forced to escort two spectators from the arena during overtime.
With just two minutes left to go, NBA megastar LeBron made officials aware that he was being heckled courtside.
Visibly upset, LeBron stopped the game to ensure the two people in question were dealt with appropriately.

"This one, right f**king here," he said as he pointed out the culprits.
Te referee quickly intervened and instructed security to boot the mouthy duo out.
The man and woman, who appeared to be Pacers fans, were then met with a chorus of boos as they made their way out of the arena - one of them even gesturing to fake cry by rubbing her eyes and sticking her bottom lip out.
Speaking after the win, LeBron explained exactly what unfolded and why he was so irate.
"When obscene gestures and language come into it, (it) can't be tolerated," he told reporters.
"There's a difference from cheering for your team and not wanting the other team to win and things I would never say to a fan and they shouldn't say to me."
Reports later emerged that the man and woman were allegedly making comments about LeBron's son.
Some social media users, who claimed to be witnesses to the incident, reckon the couple kept yelling: "I hope Bronny dies in a car wreck."
Unfortunately this isn't the first time LeBron has been on the wrong end of some taunting during his decorated NBA career.
Most recently, an Atlanta hawks fan exchanged pleasantries with him while she was watching courtside back when only a limited amount of fans could attend live NBA games.
She ended up getting booted out of the game later become known as "Courtside Karen" online.
