On the heels of a heartbreaking loss to the Lakers, Pistons guard Brandon Knight was still fuming about Metta World Peace's apparent punch from an altercation late in the first half. From ESPN's Dave McMenamin: "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." If you've somehow avoided seeing the replay, watch it below. As you can see, the two get tangled up, and World Peace seems to escalate the situation by refusing to let go of Knight's neck with his right arm even after the play was whistled dead -- and then sneaking in an uppercut to Knight's face with his left hand.
