Luke Walton criticizes officials, Bucks staffer over on-court melee

Milwaukee Bucks Game Preview: March 17 at Los Angeles Lakers (read here): Ti Windisch previewed Friday night's clash with the Lakers, picking out his keys to victory for both teams, on top of sharing our staff predictions. Milwaukee's Malcolm Brogdon delivered a hard foul on the Lakers' Nick Young, who shoved back. After Young pushed back, Bucks center Greg Monroe hit Young above the neck.

EL SEGUNDO The incident caused officials to eject Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell for "escalating a fight".

"D'Angelo only responded after Monroe had grabbed Nick by the neck and thrown him", Walton said, via the Associated Press. "Because if that's OK, I'm sure we can find a couple of people here in LA that want that job working for the Lakers, too". I'm going to need an explanation on it because it made no sense to me. Monroe immediately stepped in and shoved Young, and Russell then became involved.

Still, this incident shows that Walton deeply cares about this group of young players and while he may call their effort into question sometimes, there is no doubt that he loves coaching players like Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson and Russell. "The refs don't say anything about that, and he puts his hands on one of our players".

One thing that will give Self some reassurance and Izzo some concern as they prepare for Sunday's game is the experience factor. Kansas averages 13.1 turnovers per game, which is a lot, and in their four losses they gave it up almost 15 times per contest.

The Bucks edged the Lakers once it was all said and done, 107-103.

Perhaps if these two teams had another game against each other remaining this season we might see this boil over, but with their season series already complete, these fines should put an end this latest bit of National Basketball Association drama. "To see everybody respond the way they did".

The Lakers dropped to 20-49 on the season. The news was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.
