The NBA is in the process of determining what the appropriate punishment should be for those involved in the fight between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets on Saturday, and some video evidence that has emerged is not going to help Rajon Rondo.

After Rondo got into a confrontation with Chris Paul, CP3 claimed what sparked the whole thing was Rondo spitting in his face. While the live broadcast did not appear to show that, a slow motion replay that the Rockets have sent to the NBA league offices indicates Paul was telling the truth.

The Lakers reportedly took Rondo’s side, claiming that it would be almost impossible for him to spit on an opponent since he wears a mouthguard. Based on what that close-up shows, it looks like he figured it out.
