Video shows Lakers' Rondo spitting on Rockets' Paul

The NBA handed down the suspensions for Saturday's brawl between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, and it may not have exactly been what many expected.

The Lakers' Brandon Ingram, who effectively started the incident when he pushed Houston MVP James Harden, received a four-game ban.

Hours after the new clips emerged, it was revealed Rondo and Paul had been suspended for three and two games respectively.

On Saturday night, the veteran point guard started a major brawl by spitting on Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul.

Paul said Rondo spat in his face, which led to the fracas that Lakers star LeBron James helped break up.

James will try to get his first win on Monday when the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs. Rondo responded by throwing a punch at Paul, but he did not connect with it. Paul retaliated with a punch of his own which hit Rondo in the jaw.

David Price found his changeup and shook his postseason reputation
Everyone wants a piece of Jose Altuve's fly ball Wednesday night in Houston , including Boston Red Sox right-fielder Mookie Betts. Despite both teams combining for a record-breaking 10 home runs, the AL pulled out an 8-6 win in extra innings at Nationals Park.

As the players converted, Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo had words. Ingram shoved Harden, and was given a technical. Just stand there and get spit on and then take a punch in the face and then say, 'well that's OK?' That doesn't make any sense to me.

The video shows Rondo blow saliva in Paul's face. Not in sports, in the streets, that's blatant disrespect.

Anthony, who tried to play peacemaker this time around for the Rockets, is probably wondering if he can call Vandeweghe and commissioner Adam Silver about recouping some of those lost game checks from more than a decade ago. They got tangled up in the second quarter of a game then, and tensions were high when the game was over, with players like Paul Pierce needing to get between the two before everyone left the court.

After the game, Rondo's former Boston Celtics teammate Paul Pierce said on ESPN that he was not "surprised at all" by the fight.

Of course, Rondo will claim that he didn't mean to spit on Paul.

And remember, we're just days into the National Basketball Association season.
