Lonzo Ball weighs in on Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo fight

LeBron James

But what it brought instead was go time, as a brawl erupted with Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo at its epicentre.

Houston and Los Angeles haven't exactly been lighting the basketball world on fire to start the season, so the absences of key players will hurt. "The fans were extremely excited".

They deserve credit for battling both teams until late in the fourth quarter.

It all started after Brandon Ingram, who is usually a mild-mannered player, shoved James Harden from the behind for no apparent reason. The referees claimed he got fouled on the floor, and Harden was upset that his shot was waived off.

"Paul has been suspended for poking at and making contact with the face of Rondo, and throwing multiple punches at him". Ingram then threw punches in the melee.

When asked if his relationship with Paul helped when it came to cooling the heated situation down, James joked, "Nah, it actually. we're not friends anymore". The shoving continued between Rondo and Paul before Rondo threw a punch, igniting the fight.

"Unacceptable", Houston's Carmelo Anthony said. You know what happened after that. Paul could contend he only responded when provoked by Rondo, which is a fair argument.

Lakers players disputed that and reported that the team had reviewed video and saw no spit, either accidental or deliberate.

On the court, you have teammates, coaches, and security readily available to pull you back. He declined to comment on the fight after the game.

A minute later he tried his first three pointer from 26 feet but it bounced away. His defense, rebounding and shooting has been valuable, with averages of 10.5 points, 5.0 boards and a 5-of-12 clip on 3-pointers (as opponents have unsuccessfully dared him to shoot).
