    LOS ANGELES – The great New York Knicks man, Bobby Portis, was expelled in the first half of Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers for knocking Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hard on the head while the Lakers guard was in the air.

    The Lakers led the Knicks 39-30 with 8:02 remaining in the second quarter when Caldwell-Pope sneaked in for a transition from a Rajon Rondo feed when Portis, dragging himself from behind, swung his right arm, hitting the top of Caldwell – The pope’s head with the inside of the biceps.

    The blow sent the Caldwell-Pope armband flying and the game ended with Caldwell-Pope on the floor wincing in pain as many of his Lakers teammates – LeBron James and Rondo among them – faced Portis.

    Following the review of an official, Portis was assessed a flagrant foul 2 and sent off.
