Prior to tip, many wondered if they would embrace or perhaps even give a simple fist bump, but it wasn’t to be as the pair stayed away from each other in the first meeting since their altercation last week. 

The incident, in which James received and one-game suspension and Stewart received two games, set the internet alight, with many expecting fireworks from tonight’s matchup.
