Yikes, it got ugly last night at the Lakers game & after the game. Nick Young was ejected for punching Goran Dragic & pushing Alex Len after a hard foul during the Lakers/Suns game. Afterwards, Swaggy P was upset that his teammates didn’t come to his aid during the scuffle — which I have to agree with.
Check out what happened & what he exactly said after the jump….
It started when Phoenix forward Alex Len delivered a hard foul on Young that knocked him to the floor as he drove for a layup. Young immediately stood up and shoved Len back. Young and Suns forward Marcus Morris also shared shoves. Young then made contact with an open hand on Dragic’s head after he entered the fray. Len also earned a flagrant foul 2 and a subsequent ejection. Morris was slapped with a technical foul. Young soon removed his jersey before entering the player’s tunnel.
…Young openly lamented that his teammates didn’t intervene.
“What I was mad about is it was one-on-five,” said Young, who has posted nine points on 4-of-8 shooting before his ejection. “If somebody had gotten in the middle, it wouldn’t have escalated that much.”
