The Houston Rockets were up by a point on the Los Angeles Lakers when Brandon Ingram pushed James Harden in the back.

Paul will forfeit $491,781 in salary, Rondo $186,206, and Ingram $158,817. The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player James signed with the Lakers three months ago after leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to four straight NBA final appearances, including their first championship in 2016.

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. But they could be in much worse predicaments, with Ingram, Rondo or Paul sitting five, seven or even 10 games.

Paul then put his finger in Rondo's face, and Rondo responded by throwing a punch, and Paul punched back.

As the players converted, Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo had words.

Ingram shoved James Harden, then turned toward an official and appeared to have cr for him before Lance Stephenson intervened by ushering the young forward away.

"We have so few of these and we're very lucky in that regard, " VanDeWeghe said. The Rockets said Rondo spit at Paul, one of the things that the National Basketball Association was studying Sunday. "This game is played with a lot of passion and it's an aggressive game and obviously there is contact in the game".

Asked if he had ever seen Paul so angry, D'Antoni said: "I've never really seen him spit on before". With Paul out of the lineup, Eric Gordon slid into the starting lineup and James Harden handled the point guard duties for the majority of the game.

Now, the question becomes whether or not Rondo did, indeed, spit in Paul's face.

Paul claimed Rondo caused their fight by spitting on him. "I think we take this opportunity tonight to go over the things we could have done better and be frustrated", he said.
