Bucks Roll On, Beat Lakers

Bucks Roll On, Beat Lakers

The NBA fined two Los Angeles Lakers players and one from the Milwaukee Bucks for an on-court scuffle that broke out in Friday's 107-103 Bucks win over the Lakers at Staples Center. Greg Monroe pushed Young in the neck, prompting Russell to shove Monroe in the back. Young was ejected for picking up his second technical, while Russell and Monroe were given double technicals - auto-ejections - for their role in the altercation.

Friday night's big confrontation between the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers must have been frustrating to watch for L.A. head coach Luke Walton. But D'Angelo only responded after Monroe had grabbed Nick by the neck and thrown him. "So if D'Angelo didn't push him, I would have been (mad) at D'Angelo". He did the right thing. "I want them to fight for each other and fight for themselves and to fight for our organization so there's sometimes I choose to lose it just to prove that point". So he did all that and he got the same penalty as when D'Angelo did it for shoving someone in the back that was a teammate.

"I'm not going to comment on it", said Walton, who coached Green as an assistant the past two years in Golden State. "The refs don't say anything about that, and he puts his hands on one of our players". I'm going to make sure they're getting our message across because I don't want our young guys complaining about it all the time.

'Unbelievable' Dele Alli can play anywhere on the pitch - Pochettino
The 22-year-old Netherlands worldwide striker did not start the match, but he came on as a substitute in the 86th minute. Midfielder Mousa Dembele is fit, but Kyle Walker and Victor Wanyama are doubts with minor knocks.

Also, the National Basketball Association did not offer any language on the team employee who got involved, so the league is sending a slightly mixed message by not fining the coach for speaking out, while also not punishing the team for sending out a security guard during an on-court scuffle. Nance added 13 points after logging only eight minutes against Houston.

The Lakers dropped to 20-49 on the season.
