With just over two minutes left in the first quarter and L.A. up 34-20, Raptors forward Pascal Siakam registered a steal that led to a fast-break opportunity for Anunoby, who soared in for a layup.

Lakers point guard Dennis Schroder fouled him to stop the attempt, and he and Anunoby got tangled in the process.

Anunoby then picked up Schroder and placed him on the ground. Harrell took exception to the action and rushed in to protect Schroder, shoving Raptors guard Gary Trent Jr.

DeAndre' Bembry substituted in and shot Anunoby's free throws in his place. Schroder, who was called for a personal foul, did not get ejected.

The altercation occurred amid an ugly first half for the Raptors, who trailed by as many as 34 points en route to a 68-42 halftime deficit.
