NBA Opens Investigation Into Rockets-Clippers Postgame Incident

The NBA is planning to speak with players from both the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers to determine the specifics of late-game and postgame events involving the teams.NBA spokesman Tim Frank said that the league would look into the matter. Tempers boiled over Monday night late in the Clippers’ 113-102 victory, to the point where several security guards were needed outside the Houston locker room postgame. Several Rockets players headed toward the Clippers’ locker room afterward, seeking a confrontation, but were escorted away by security before anything got physical.  It is expected that the NBA will have to take some disciplinary action against players. Both teams are off Tuesday, which means the NBA will have some time to investigate the incident.
