Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo Suspended Several Games After Lakers-Rockets Brawl

Recap Lonzo Ball's hot shooting not enough against Rockets

Recap Lonzo Ball's hot shooting not enough against Rockets

Anthony Kiedis, lead singer of California's Red Hot Chili Peppers, was booted from a recent basketball game between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers over the weekend after he was no longer able to contain his frustrations over the match. Ingram disagreed with the call and pushed Harden in the back, drawing a technical. Tensions appeared to ease as Ingram was escorted away by his teammates.

Paul wasn't through with L.A. after Rondo spit on his cheek and repeatedly punched him in the face, because Kiedis gave the Rockets star the verbal equivalent on his way out of Staples Center. "If you wanted to suspend him one [game] I get it, just to make a statement". Rondo received three games for spitting on Paul and landing punches. The league has not made any announcements yet.

Rondo will be fined a total of $186,20, while Ingram's total is $158,816. Given that precedence, something approaching double digits for both Ingram and Rondo seems like it would have been more appropriate. It was later claimed by Paul that the initial fracas began after Rondo spit in his face.

The beef between Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul apparently got even more personal after their actual physical altercation on Saturday night.

Rondo threw a punch at Paul after Paul poked a finger into his face. Paul could contend he only responded when provoked by Rondo, which is a fair argument. They double as two of the team's best playmakers, capable of creating shots for themselves and others and replacing them for Monday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs would be no easy task. Players from both teams broke up the fight quickly by separating the players involved, though.

"Rajon has his own view of what happened", VanDeWeghe said. "I think we take this opportunity tonight to go over the things we could have done better and be frustrated", he said.

The Lakers fell 124-115 to the visiting Houston Rockets to spoil James' debut at Staples Center after dropping their season opener to the Trail Blazers in Portland on Thursday.
