This Lakers season has been full of disappointments and not only did the Lakers lose to the Suns tonight, but Nick Young was kicked out of the game. To make matters worse, none of his teammates came to his defense during the altercation. Young stated after the game that he felt it was one against five while his back was against the wall:

Young was fouled hard by rookie Alex Len and Young was very upset with the aggressive and unnecessary foul. Len targeted Young’s head and that is why he was so furious, but Young was never able to get to Len because he was surrounded by four other Suns. Young was shoved numerous times, but no Laker ever came to the rescue. Ryan Kelly was closest to the action, but just stood and watched it all unravel. Kendall Marshall was by the three-point line and never made any effort to diffuse the situation.

Bench players cannot enter the court otherwise they are suspended. However, the Lakers on the floor should have at least got in between Young and the rest of the Suns. Young felt he was taking the Suns on his own and the replay is hard to argue against. Although the altercation did not last too long, Young did take a swing at Goran Dragic, but would acknowledge that he lost his cool. Young will more than likely be suspended for one game.
