The NBA suspended Brandon Ingram for four games and Rajon Rondo for three games. Chris Paul was suspended for two games. The NBA says Ingram's suspension was for "aggressively returning to and escalating the altercation and throwing a punch in the direction of Paul, confronting a game official in a hostile manner, and instigating the overall incident by shoving Rockets guard James Harden." Rondo's suspension was for "instigating a physical altercation with, and spitting and throwing multiple punches at, Paul." And Paul's suspension was for "poking at and making contact with the face of Rondo, and throwing multiple punches at him."

Windhorst: Ingram receives 'most severe penalty' after brawl (2:09)

Bobby Marks ESPN 

The four game suspension by Brandon Ingram is the most (on-court) since the 7 game suspension when Metta World Peace took out James Harden in April 2012. Ironically that also occurred at the Staples Center. The NBA clearly sent a message today with all three suspensions.

Here are the financial implications from the altercation between Houston and the Lakers: Brandon Ingram will be fined $158,817 for the four games suspended. Rajon Rondo will be fined $186,207 for three games suspended. Chris Paul will be fined $491,781 for the two games suspended. The suspension is based on total salary divided by 145. In addition, Houston will receive a $245,891 credit that will be applied to their luxury tax at the end of the season.
