The Lakers-Rockets clash culminated in a brawl

Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

Houston Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni is having a hard time comprehending why the National Basketball Association handed down a multiple-game suspension to point guard Chris Paul for his role in Saturday's brawl at Staples Center.

With 4:13 left in the game, Houston had a one-point lead (109-108) and Harden was driving to the basket but Brandon Ingram was in the way.

Ingram was suspended four games, Rondo will sit out three games and Paul two games.

Paul, Ingram and Rondo were all ejected from the game and are likely to be suspended for throwing punches.

The good news is the Lakers' schedule eases up this week, with the San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, Denver Nuggets and Spurs again on deck. "I didn't see that", Lonzo Ball said. "It is what it is".

"Then you're talking monetarily, he's paying three times more than the other guys are paying for missing games? And now it's about next man up, moving forward, and keep positive, keep getting better".

Rondo was asked if he addressed his teammates about the incident and said he did not. I know how to be a leader. "It's just not equitable".

LeBron says he tried his best to calm things down and he didn't speak to his team after the game. 'It Got insane at the end, but man I get so satisfied, deeply drinking in the depth and beauty of the game. "That's all that was on my mind, at the end of the day". James attempted to break up the fight by grabbing Paul, his friend.

The Lakers had been easing the point guard back into action after offseason knee surgery. Paul didn't play in Sunday's contest as he was serving the first game of his two-game suspension.

Both Kiedis and Flea are longtime Lakers fans, and even wrote a song titled "Magic Johnson" on their classic 1989 album, Mother's Milk.

"It's my full responsibility", Ingram said. Ingram then came flying in and punched Paul in the back of the head.

The pressure will be on the two second-year players to perform with the starters as the Lakers look to avoid an 0-3 start. And nobody said it was going to be easy. "I think that we had a clear view that, however you want to interpret it, that there was a spitting in Chris Paul's direction".
