The Lakers’ Nick Young has been suspended by the NBA for Friday’s game with the Celtics, owing to this Wednesday skirmish with the Suns. In that one, Young tried to fight, well, just about everybody on the Phoenix team. Young tried to posterize rookie Alex Len, and Len gave Young a shot to the face. Or shoulder. Hard to tell. You be the judge.
Both Young and Len were ejected. After the game, however, Young called out his own teammates. Yep.
“What I’m mad about is it was 1-on-5. I felt like, if somebody (from the Lakers) would have got in the middle, everything wouldn’t have escalated that much.”
