LeBron James' First Lakers Home Game Turns Into A Brawl

Rondo Calls Chris Paul a Rockets spoil James' home debut in fight-marred game
Michele Schwartz | 23 October, 2018, 01:16

James attempted to break up the fight by grabbing Paul, his friend.

"Just get spit on and take a punch in the face and say, "Well that's okay". "You don't do that to nobody - in sports, on the street". "We all know what happened". The Lakers then play at Phoenix, home against Denver and at San Antonio.

The Rockets star has also been suspended by the league office, for just two games, although has been handed the heaviest fine - $491,781. Harden hit a key 3-pointer with 1:12 left to propel the Rockets to their first win of the season. He declined to comment on the fight after the game. Clint Capela contributed 19 and 12 boards as the Rockets out-rebounded LA, 54-44.

Harden finished with 36 points and Paul delivered 28 and 10 assists before he was ejected in the fourth quarter for fighting. "It had some intensity and quickness, and how fast it was". Ingram was immediately given a technical foul and he was quickly restrained by teammate Lance Stephenson after he got into the referee's face. Houston hasn't lost a season series with the Lakers since 2010-11. Gerald Green added 13 off the bench.

Walton will also need to alter his bench rotation as Beasley, rookie Svi Mykhailiuk, or possibly two-way player Alex Caruso could see expanded roles. "So in this particular instance, the multiple-game suspensions are pretty severe both to their teams and financially to the players".

National Basketball Association vice president Kiki Vandeweghe, the man in charge of handling these kinds of punishments, was in attendance at Staples Center witnessing everything first-hand. The Lakers have argued that no spitting took place, but the Rockets have been standing by Paul's account.

Asked if he had ever seen Paul so angry, D'Antoni said: "I've never really seen him spit on before".

"He was straight up with us", D'Antoni' said. The Lakers' opening game Thursday - a loss at Portland - drew a 2.6 rating on TNT, up 63% in metered markets compared with the same game a year ago, when the Lakers faced the rival Clippers.

Following the game on Saturday, a href="There was a lot of jerseys over there", Ball said".
