Each length is fair, though it was kind of surprising to see only four games for Ingram since he incited the confrontations and then threw a punch, but there are rotational fallouts for the Lakers missing two starters this week.

The league also concluded that Rondo did spit at Paul, which prompted Paul to poking him in the face. Rondo sported a cut underneath his eye after the game from where Paul made contact.

Three players were ejected in the brawl, which began when the Lakers' Brandon Ingram shoved the Rockets' James Harden.

Kiedis' outburst came moments after a violent altercation broke out on the court between the Rockets' Chris Paul and the Lakers' Rajon Rondo during the Saturday game.

A technical foul was immediately issued to Ingram, which is when Paul wandered over in Rondo's direction. Ingram appeared to throw a punch or two in as well while the guards were being split up.

Damning close-up footage seems to show the alleged spit that sparked the weird brawl, with long-time rivals Rondo and Paul going toe-to-toe. Paul was stopped from any further involvement when James, a close friend, was able to walk him away from the chaos.

Paul and Rondo were the main combatants trading blows after Paul stuck his finger in Rondo's face and pushed him hard.

James, who stepped in to help break up the melee, said he did not see what caused the brawl, which the Rockets said started when Rondo spit in Paul's face.

Logically, the Lakers were expected to lose their first two games- in Portland, where they seldom win, and at home against one of the league's best teams, Houston.

Ingram and Rondo will start their suspensions on Tuesday (NZT) when the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs. "So in this particular instance, the multiple-game suspensions are pretty severe both to their teams and financially to the players".

VanDeWeghe clearly indicated that Rondo did not acknowledge spitting on Paul. "I think I'm going to leave it at that".
