The Lakers-Rockets clash culminated in a brawl

  • LeBron James

Tempers flared from there with Chris Paul and Rondo trading blows, the Lakers point guard shown to have spat towards his Rockets counterpart during the face-to-face to which Paul stuck a finger into Rondo's face in response. It's hard for me to understand how Rondo didn't get a matching sentence with Ingram at the very least.

As you can see from this video, Rondo clearly spits on Paul's face. Paul was handed a two-game ban, while Lakers forward Brandon Ingram was issued a four-game suspension for "instigating the overall incident" and throwing a punch during the melee.

The extraordinary scenes overshadowed LeBron James's home debut with the Lakers, which ended in a 124-115 Rockets victory.

Ingram, Paul and Rondo were all ejected.

Paul will forfeit $491,781 in salary, Rondo $186,206, and Ingram $158,817. Paul threw a punch, so he will be suspended as well, but he threw a punch in response to Rondo spitting on him, which is at least partly justified.

Your Arsenal is not back yet, boss Unai Emery tells Gunners fans
With Sokratis a doubt, we could see Rob Holding lining up alongside Shkodran Mustafi in central defence . Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been involved in 19 goals in his last 21 Premier League appearances.

One of the league's best slashers and mid-range artists, DeRozan has shouldered his team's offense in its first two games, averaging 28.0 points on an efficient 48.8 percent clip.

Ingram and Rondo will start their suspensions on Monday night when the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs. National Basketball Association fights rarely get serious enough for the punches thrown by the principals in this brouhaha, and league discipline executive Kiki VanDeWeghe was actually in attendance. Not in sports, in the streets, that's blatant disrespect.

A frustrated Ingram then pushed Harden from behind and the two argued back and forth. Players from both teams broke up the fight quickly by separating the players involved, though. "This game is played with a lot of passion and it's an aggressive game and obviously there is contact in the game".

They have a history of raising the ire of the other, going back to at least 2009 during a Boston-New Orleans game. "I think we owe it to ourselves to start from the beginning with this guy and see what we can accomplish".
