Juliana Carlos, 25, clarified in a series of since-deleted movies on her Instagram what triggered the altercation between her husband and James and that which resulted in her involvement.

He has been watching the games for 10 years," she said, according to a ESPN report. "No matter, he has this issue with LeBron. I don't have an problem with LeBron. I don't give a f-- roughly LeBron,"

She continued:"Anyway, I'm minding my own business, drinking my [drink ], having fun. And I go,'Don't f--ing talk to my husband.' And he looks at me and he goes,'Sit -- down, b--.' And I go,'Do not f--ing call me a b--. You sit the f-- down. Get the f-- out of here. Don't f--ing talk to my spouse like that.'"

Four lovers, such as Carlos and her husband, were ejected from the game as a result.

James was asked concerning the courtside spat following the match but he didn't seem too phased by it, even saying that he did not believe the argument"justified" them being thrown outside.

"At the close of the day, I am glad supporters are back at the building," he explained during his post-game press conference. "I miss that discussion. I want that interaction. We as players need that interaction. I really don't feel like it had been warranted to be kicked out."

He continued:"There was a back-and-forth between two grown men and we said our bit. He said his bit, I said my piece and then when someone else jumped and said their serenity but I did not believe they should've been kicked out."

James said coyly that alcohol ingestion may have played an important role.

"They've had a couple drinks, maybe," he explained. "And they might have likely kept it going during the game, and the match would not have been about the game no more, so I feel the referees did exactly what they had to do."

But, James took a dig at Carlos on Twitter after the game, calling her a"Courtside Karen."

A Hawks official told ESPN that Atlanta's State Farm Arena was allowing 8% capacity on Monday night.
