Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard said he won't forget the shot to his mouth that Golden State's David Lee delivered on Monday night and the superstar will "take care of it later."

The play came in the second quarter of a 109-103 loss at Golden State, when Lee led with his elbow on an offensive play, connecting with Howard's face. The hit led to multiple stitches to stop the bleeding of a bloody lip.

Here's video exclusive to Bleacher Report of Howard discussing the incident:

"He got away with a shot," Howard said. "I will remember this game; I'll remember that shot."

When Howard was asked if Lee said anything to him after halftime, the Lakers star said: "He said he wasn't trying to do it. You can look at the play and see it for yourself."

Howard finally added: "I'll take care of it later."

Here's the play:
