Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis says he was surprised by the NBA's decision to suspend LeBron James for his altercation with Detroit Pistons big man Isaiah Stewart on Sunday. 

"I was surprised. I mean, I didn't think he would get suspended," Davis told reporters Tuesday. "I don't think anyone thought he was going to be suspended, to be honest. ... It was strange. But there's nothing we can do about it." 

A brawl broke out during the third quarter of Sunday's Lakers-Pistons game after James hit Stewart in the face while fighting for a rebound after a couple of foul shots from Jerami Grant.
