He definitely deserves the biggest suspension.

I'd say rondo will get 4-5, Ingram 6-8 games.
Paul 4-5

And lance Stephenson to get a reward for not going in swinging

Paul's eye gouge may have been a dirtier play then the punches tbh. But agree Ingram as 3rd man in will wear the brunt of it.

The angle that shows Paul's eyegouge isn't a good look, don't blame Rondo for starting to swing after seeing that. Ingram was just looking for an excuse to go in.

Allegedly Rondo spat on Paul, if true needs 20 games.

The irony here James Harden looked like the real king James in the last few minutes

Problem in today's game was putting Harden to the line for his ridiculous 3 pt attempts when he initiated the contact, or over dramatised the contact.

Ricky Rubio did a similar stunt yesterday and the refs made it a no call. Commentators and Refs on the same song sheet saying they are not rewarding these stupid false attempts this season.

1 day later and back to the Harden flop show

Here's some slow-mo of the Paul/Rondo stuff including the spit and gouge.

Of the broader incident, Ingram is surely in trouble for starting it all, approaching a ref like that and then entering swinging later on.

As Shayno joked, brownie points for Lance Stephenson playing a positive role. Who would've thought.

They fight like basketballers and afl players, no one gets hurt. Not a great look though.

4 games is barely a slap on the wrist in an 82 game season. I'm very surprised.

People "mocking" the softness of the punches here should read "The Punch" by/about Rudy Tomjanovich. To paraphrase from memory "the metallic taste in the back of my throat was brain fluid"
