National Basketball Association doles out suspensions for Lakers-Rockets brawl

National Basketball Association doles out suspensions for Lakers-Rockets brawl

The fight, which saw fists flying between LA's Rajon Rondo and Houston's Chris Paul, erupted in the 4:13 mark of the fourth quarter with the Rockets nursing a 109-108 lead.

Watch footage of Kiedis yelling at Paul below. James played the role of the peacemaker, grabbing Paul from behind and dragging him away from the melee.

It's a well-known fact that the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis is fond of California.

"At the lakers game last night with my dear brother", Flea wrote. I understand he gets maybe one (game).

Kiedis was definitely operating at a high level, and technical a middle finger to somebody's face is unspoken communication, but we're guessing he doesn't ever want to feel like he did that day again. "Cerebral, physical, spiritual, emotional, unspoken and telepathic communication".

Any game of NBA basketball right now that features Lebron James in an L.A. Lakers uniform is going to have all eyes on it, especially when his team is losing.

The penalty was costliest to Paul, who was fined a total of US$491,782 (NZ$746,000). With four minutes left to play in a hard-fought game against the Houston Rockets, Brandon Ingram got called for a foul; irate, he shoved James Harden. Paul was suspended for poking at and making contact Rondo's face and throwing multiple punches at him. Rondo responded with a punch and Paul let fly with a punch.

Both players landed a few punches, as did Ingram who sprinted back into the scrum from across the court.

Ingram is likely facing the most serious amount of suspension time, but this latest evidence could put Rondo's status in question as well.

"Chris Paul should have unloaded on Rondo, so he should be getting 20". 'This goes back to maybe Rondo's rookie year or second year.
