Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young wanted a piece of about four or five Suns players during an altercation in Wednesday night’s game in Phoenix.
The whole incident started when Suns center Alex Len fouled Young hard as the Lakers guard drove to the basket. Young was angry at a number of Suns players, but he really lost his cool when he attempted to punch Suns guard Goran Dragic.
The NBA suspended Young one game on Thursday for the attempted punch. The league also fined multiple players, per ESPN’s Marc Stein.
