Lakers' Ingram, Rondo, and Rockets' Paul suspended for involvement in skirmish

Luke Walton finally faces the pressure and scrutiny of being Lakers head coach

The two were face-to-face after a scrum had formed over a previous technical foul, and Paul says Rondo spit in his face during the exchange.

"That's unacceptable", Rockets star Carmelo Anthony said of Rondo.

"Rondo has been suspended for instigating a physical altercation with, and spitting and throwing multiple punches at, Paul".

The Rockets contend that Rondo spit in Paul's face, which provoked the nine-time All-Star to retaliate. Rondo, Paul, and Ingram were all ejected. Rondo sported a cut underneath his eye after the game from where Paul made contact.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski now reports that Rondo and the Lakers will have to convince the league office that the spit was unintentional, but one detail appears to be 100-percent confirmed. The Rockets took video of the game from the sidelines, and got a great view of Rondo and Paul during the incident.

The NBA's vice president of basketball operations, Kiki VanDeWeghe, was at the game at Staples Center in Los Angeles and headed the probe, as well as interviewing participants and witnesses.

The NBA has suspended Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul two games and Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo and forward Brandon Ingram three and four games, respectively, for their parts in a melee between the two teams on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

It was already a insane night in Staples Center with LeBron having his first official home game in front of a ruckus Los Angeles Lakers crowd that was ready for this new era.
