Rondo and BI have to be gone for a minimum of 3 games right? No way it's more lenient than that.


Rondo maybe but Ingram doesn’t have a rep so he may get a “warning” of 2 games.


Rondo got contact to the face and responded while Ingram ran over and threw a punch, so it's hard to predict


Could be. All I’m saying is Ingram may not get the book thrown at him because he’s always been the quiet, passive type. We’ll see though.


Right. Lots of factors so I think it is hard to predict. MWP got 7 games right? for the Harden elbow, so hopefully he doesnt get 7.


I think the league sends a message, and slaps Ingram with 5-7 games. Wouln’t be surprised if they give him 10. That sounds crazy, but I wouldn’t be surprised.


Hopefully they take in to consideration the need to protect LeBrons image. 10 games without Ingram won't make it any easier to win games.


It would be terrible..5 games would be terrible...for both Ingram and the team.

There is 0 evidence that Rondo spit on him. What a joke.


2 new theories on Twitter now

1. The spit came from the Ref blowing whistle
2. It was Melo


I think the angle that the ref is at makes more sense than Melo now that I looked at it again.

He actually started pretty well, making some shots and defending but then he just couldn't stay in front of anybody defensively and checked out on offense. Overall just so many dumb fouls and missed free throws. Hard to ask for more made threes with no shooters, they had their chances just let it get away.


When BI struggled offensively in past, he made up for it by excellent defense. But he's not playing as good defense so far, or rebounding as well.

I think Walton changed a lot of these guys roles this year, and one can sense players like Kuzma and BI are having hard time adjusting. BI seems most frustrated out of bunch.

These first two games are the best defense of his career. Flat out.



ehhh I think I agree, but barely, he could minimize so many dumb fouls. He has showed a new level of D this year in spurts of a few minutes at a time. On a different note Lonzo looked great on both ends, hitting his shots and not giving up anything on D, he is super disciplined, rarely leaves his feet and just bodies up. Really stoked with his game tonight.

Lakers saying Rondo didn't spit.

@wojespn

Sources: Lakers officials watched tape and are backing Rajon Rondo’s contention that he didn’t spit on Chris Paul. Meanwhile, CP3 and Rockets are insisting that Rondo did spit. “Lot of history between them,” one source connected to both players says.


Here is video. If Rondo spit I don't see it here. Possible sweat or just saliva landing with two guys arguing right next to each other. If Rondo did spit he did it very nonchalantly.

could have been a say it don't spray it type thing like Rudy Giuliani

The fight is helping me forget with the fact that we looked awful on D and O at times tonight but still kept it close. I thought the fight took the wind out of the team. Close enough isn't going to cut it if we want to make the playoffs tho. I'm expecting a win on Monday. If not, I'm gonna be out from LG for a while.

We'll be fine, we hung with two good teams. Lots of moving parts/new players; the team has some things it needs to fix, but it also looks promising.

Stauskas might be the new Matt Caroll who always went off against the Lakers when he was with the Charlotte Bobcats.

Kill the Lakers but then G league against everyone else.

Better win Monday.

In this conference, close enough is non-playoff team. Yes teams have come back from 0-2, 0-3 and even worse but that’s not something that should be put to test in the brutal WC.

Need a few Ws this week.

Welp, I got the Rockets points total and the margin of victory right but the wrong victor.

My 2 cents about the fracas...

Much ado about nothing. Tempers were flaring because of how physical at times it became and how blatant the lack of any realistic officiating took place on both sides.

Isn't that what we want? Don't we want someone to not just take fingers in his face? Don't we want to see a young guy, who over reacted, but had good intentions stick up for his team mates? They are preaching unity and I saw that. Sure Ingram escalated it and will get the stiffest of punishment but his heart was in the right place. Plus the whole did he or didn't he with the spit is insane. Sure, everyone on the Rockets is going to believe their guy's take but someone on the broadcast made the point that if spit was spat it would have been film and I am sure the ESPN producers were dissecting the video frame by frame to see any spit.

It's sad that took away from a hell of a game but its the headline. I will say for the amount of crap I have given Rondo over the years, dude plays extremely hard and is devoted to his team. Gotta respect that.

Hey, stepping away for a bit can be healthy. He only said LG, not the games themselves.

yeah...the negativity toward our own players can get depressing when you are looking for positive experience...the hate can be oppressive

Really stoked with his game tonight.

There may be a dumb foul or two that stand out in a small sample size, but his foul rate remains low (about 2.5 fouls per36) - he's never been a foul prone player - even with increased activity on defense.

I agree, Lonzo looked good last night. He was setting screens all over the court and he was very smart with his hands when defending CP3 and Harden.

DAYUM!!! A young team, searching for a identity, a inexperienced HEAD COACH, trying to find a starting unit, a Super Star trying to make it work, high expectations, played two games close, one with a team touted to possibly win the West and I see so much negativity. I'm going to do as I've done since 1960, let the team play 20 games before I assess them. OH YE OF LITTLE FAITH.
