Rajon Rondo, Chris Paul trade punches during insane fight

Rajon Rondo, Chris Paul trade punches during insane fight

The Rockets took video of the game from the sidelines, and got a great view of Rondo and Paul during the incident.

Saturday night was a huge one for Los Angeles sports: Not only were the Dodgers playing for a trip to the World Series, LeBron James played his first home game as a Los Angeles Laker. He shared that the team is moving on from the incident and even practiced with Rajon Rondo and Brandom Ingram - two members of the Lakers who were directly involved in the altercation. Rondo received three games for spitting on Paul and landing punches. Multi-game suspensions are expected for the players that threw punches.

Lonzo Ball, last season's starter at point guard, could replace Rondo in the starting lineup when the Lakers host the Spurs Monday night.

"[We are] sending a clear message that this is not acceptable behaviour and you can not do this".

Paul wil be out for "poking at and making contact with the face of Rondo, and throwing multiple punches at him". We can only guess that the Chili Peppers frontman said something along the lines of "suck my kiss" or "what I've got you've got to give it to your mama". 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.

Pre league release, Rondo was suspended for instigating a physical altercation with and spitting and throwing multiple punches at Paul.

"I don't know, I might rest him (on a) back-to-back", D'Antoni said. I understand that. We'll go on.

After going home to win the National Basketball Association title with the Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James moved on this year to play for the LA Lakers.
