National Basketball Association hands down suspension for Rockets-Lakers fight

Watch Nike’s Brilliant New LeBron James “Just Do It” Ad NBA: Lebron James' LA Lakers home debut is marred by a fight and ends in defeat

Late in the fourth quarter of the Rockets' 124-115 win in LeBron James's home debut at the Staples Center, Ingram was called for a foul on James Harden and pushed the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player after the whistle.

Shortly afterwards, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul are seen jawing back and forth as the camera follows Ingram. Tensions appeared to ease as Ingram was escorted away by his teammates.

The Lakers' Rondo insisted after the game that he didn't spit at Houston veteran Paul, however, hours after the clips emerged, it was revealed Rondo and Paul had been suspended for three and two games respectively.

Rondo was suspended for instigating a physical altercation with Paul, and spitting and throwing multiple punches at the Rockets star. Both Ingram and Rondo initiated both incidents and should receive the biggest fines and suspensions. The league has not made any announcements yet.

That is compared to Ingram's $158,817 penalty and the financial hit that Rondo will take, $186,207. Houston's Chris Paul and the Lakers' Rajon Rondo soon traded swings; Ingram, Rondo and Paul were eventually tossed when order was restored.

"I came in and I knew that he (Paul) wouldn't tell me something that would get me in trouble if I said something", said D'Antoni when asked if his opinion on the brawl changed after seeing the Rondo spit video.

Rondo throws a left hook at Paul and CP3 quickly returns the favor.

James said his focus was on the game against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday. Players from both teams broke up the fight quickly by separating the players involved, though.

Houston went on to win 124-115, spoiling James' home debut and leaving the Lakers without a win in two games so far this National Basketball Association season. "This game is played with a lot of passion and it's an aggressive game and obviously there is contact in the game". "I just tried to calm things down, that's all". "We're going to need guys that haven't been playing to step in, be ready and confident and I believe they will be".
