Video Evidence Clearly Shows Rajon Rondo Spitting in Chris Paul’s Face

Video Evidence Clearly Shows Rajon Rondo Spitting in Chris Paul’s Face

Tensions appeared to ease as Ingram was escorted away by his teammates.

L.A. will be without Ingram and Rondo's services Following Saturday's on-court altercation, Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo have been suspended for four and three games, respectively. Following the coming together of Paul and Rondo, Ingram ran from half-court and threw a punch in the direction of Paul and P.J. Tucker, but it didn't land flush.

Rondo received a three-game suspension for throwing punches and spitting at Paul, who drew a two-game suspension for poking at Rondo's face and throwing punches at him. The league has not made any announcements yet.

The Rockets remain in Los Angeles to play the Clippers on Sunday night, while the Lakers are next in action on Monday night when they host the San Antonio Spurs.

"It escalated pretty quickly but besides that I am happy we got our first win", said Harden, adding that Paul said Rondo spit on him. An on-court brawl in the pivotal final minutes of a close game between the Lakers and the Houston Rockets all but marred James' debut, though ESPN won't complain as the primetime game gave the network its best rating for an opening-week National Basketball Association matchup since 2014.

The fight could leave with both teams without key rotation players due to suspension.

"We try to judge each one of these [incidents] on the merits: who does what, who instigates, how risky the situation becomes and is", VanDeWeghe said. "This game is played with a lot of passion and it's an aggressive game and obviously there is contact in the game".

Rondo throws a left hook at Paul and CP3 quickly returns the favor. Rondo pointed to the fact that he was wearing a mouthguard, which would impact his ability to intentionally spit on someone.

"Rajon has his own view of what happened", VanDeWeghe said. "It's just not equitable". "I have seen it go 10-15 games before - I was the culprit of that years ago".
