The difference is that Kiedis gets to go home and probably surf, while the three have to watch from the sidelines for the next few games without pay.

The NBA was evaluating a video shot courtside that appeared to capture Rondo spitting into the face of Paul at Staples Center, league sources told ESPN earlier Sunday.

Before Paul was off the floor, Kiedis extended his arm and presented his middle finger to the Rockets star.

Following the game, fellow Chili Peppers bandmate Flea took to Instagram to address the events that unfolded during the heated game, writing, "It got insane at the end, but man I get so satisfied, deeply drinking in the depth and beauty of the game". It Got insane at the end, but man I get so satisfied, deeply drinking in the depth and beauty of the game. "Cerebral, physical, spiritual, emotional, unspoken and telepathic communication". A Lakers spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In what was an eventful night for LA Sports fans (with the Los Angeles Dodgers advancing to the World Series), the Lakers and Rockets put on a show on national television.

Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma will be making their first starts of the season as they replace Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram, who start their respective suspensions.

Anthony Kiedis and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers attend a basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets at Staples Center on October 20, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. This, apparently, got the Chili Peppers singer pretty damn red-hot, and he gave Paul an earful when the player was led past Kiedis' seat.

Rockets player Eric Gordon, who started in place of Paul in Houston's loss against the LA Clippers on Monday [AEST], also defended his teammate, saying: "If somebody is attacking you, you got to protect yourself".

Furious with the call, Ingram shoved Harden and then confronted referee Jason Phillips after getting a technical foul. Ingram came in swinging, literally, and tried to land a punch or two of his own.

The Rockets ultimately took the win on Saturday, beating the Lakers 124 - 115.

Rondo declined to talk about his role in the scuffle that broke out late in his first home game with his new team.
