D'Antoni: Paul's 2-game suspension 'just not equitable'

The Rockets held a slim 109-108 lead when the Lakers' Brandon Ingram fouled the Rockets' James Harden and then pushed him.

LeBron James reacts to the scuffle between the Lakers and Rockets, saying he said nothing to his team and let Luke Walton do the talking.

Paul was suspended two games without pay for what the league described in an official statement as "poking at and making contact with the face of (Rajon) Rondo, and throwing multiple punches at him". Moments later, Houston PG, Chris Paul and Lakers PG Rajon Rondo began trading punches. The Lakers have argued that no spitting took place, but the Rockets have been standing by Paul's account. "Travis Scott reaction to Rondo and Chris Paul fighting got me crying", one person wrote.

Anu Malik removed from Indian Idol
In an interview with Mid-Day, the two survivors narrated the story of being assaulted and harassed by Anu Malik . Anu Malik then drove into a dark, empty maidan where he dropped his trousers and asked her to lick him.

It was a more reserved start than the one he had on Thursday when he delivered back-to-back, rim-rattling dunks for his first two baskets to open his Lakers era.

But perhaps that energy - and a flagrant foul by Houston's James Ennis III against Josh Hart earlier in the fourth quarter - contributed to the shocking fight that broke out with 4:13 to play. "Just stand there and get spit on and then take a punch in the face and say, 'Well, that's OK, "' said D'Antoni, who called Rondo's spitting "pretty disgusting".

"I don't know, I might rest him (on a) back-to-back", D'Antoni said. However, the league made comment about the suspension afterward, with the NBA's Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki VanDeWeghe taking to television later on Sunday.

Usain Bolt 'offered Central Coast Mariners deal', according to agent
Bolt, who retired from track and field a year ago , was in Melbourne during the Mariners' opening match, with News Corp.

Ingram's suspension is the most for an on-court incident since Metta World Peace levelled James Harden in a game at Staples Center in April 2012.

It's unlikely that anybody was going to be happy with the result of the discipline just because of the bad blood involved.
