"But I'm not disappointed at all". And nobody said it was going to be easy.

James and the Lakers will also be without Rondo for three games, with the veteran punished for his role in instigating the scuffle and for spitting and punching Paul several times.

"We had some miscues down the stretch". There were members of the media from all over the world and a huge crowd of fans watching LeBron James' home debut.

Houston coach Mike D'Antoni disagreed with the severity of Paul's penalty. He tallied 14 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 26 minutes of play.

The Suns are 1-1 and the Lakers are 0-2 this season.

All three players threw punches during the fight.

The incident is costliest to Paul, who will be fined a total of $US491,782.

"I saw it from a distance".

As the players came together, Rondo and Paul - two players with a history of incidents stretching back to 2009 - began throwing punches before being separated by their teammates, with James dragging his friend Paul away from the confrontation. It's pretty rare to see punches thrown in the National Basketball Association, so everyone looked shocked after witnessing the fight, including boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., who sat court side. He then re-inserted himself into the situation, throwing a wild punch that could have done serious damage had it connected.

The railway crossing was open but the train should have been slowed in view of the festival, " she said. The people were standing on and near the track", senior local police official Parbhjot Singh told CNN.

Paul then missed with a right but connected with a hard left of his own.

"That's unacceptable", Rockets forward Carmelo Anthony said of Rondo's alleged actions. "If there wasn't the fight, we probably would have won that game".

"I figured it had broken up".

Meanwhile, if Zubac or Williams plays, that would cut into the Lakers' small-ball lineups they have leaned on so far.

The NBA will take the history between Paul and Rondo, which has erupted in 2009, 2012 and last March, into account as it sorts all this out, but one thing is certain.

There have been longer suspensions in recent years, but none for an on-court altercation than what Ingram got.

James said the Lakers are a young team and it will take time to improve.

James said his focus was on the game against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday.
