Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, & Brandon Ingram Suspended Following Staples Center Brawl

It all kicked off in Los Angeles as Le Bron James' home debut wasn't remembered for the right reasons

Front office insider Bobby Marks does not expect suspensions resulting from Saturday's fight between Rajon Rondo, Chris Paul, and Brandon Ingram to exceed one game.

The game will be best remembered for a fist fight that broke out in the fourth quarter that led to the ejections of Lakers' Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul of the Rockets. Paul punched back, and Ingram came running over and threw a punch in Paul's direction as well.

So, some suspensions will nearly certainly be coming.

Both players landed a few punches, as did Ingram who sprinted back into the scrum from across the court. Rondo claims the spitting didn't happen and Paul instigated.

Rondo, Paul and Ingram are all likely facing suspensions and fines, but the severity of Rondo's punishment will most likely depend on whether the National Basketball Association determines if any spitting on Paul took place, and if it did, whether or not it was intentional. And nobody said it was going to be easy. "And yes, very unsafe play, can lead to some bad consequences".

West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur
However, with just two points separating Tottenham from top-of-the-table Manchester City, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to keep the pressure on their title rivals with another win at West Ham this afternoon.

The league also concluded that Rondo did spit at Paul, which prompted Paul to poking him in the face. "This game is played with a lot of passion and it's an aggressive game and obviously there is contact in the game. It's a lot monetarily for the player, [and] it hurts the team".

As the video is enlarged, you can see actual spit leave Rondo's mouth, which makes Rondo's assertion that he didn't spit look pretty dumb.

"What is [Paul] supposed to do?" That could be why CP3 put his fingers in Rondo's face. In the heat of the moment, when somebody does that, I mean that's tough.

The Suns are 1-1 and the Lakers are 0-2 this season. Walton said he would meet with training staff members on Sunday to see if Ball's early season minutes restriction will be lifted.

Kyle Kuzma is an option to start for Ingram.
