Nick Young Tries To Fight Entire Phoenix Suns [Video]

In the second quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers game last night against the Phoenix Suns, Nick Young was running a fast break with his eyes wide open as he drove to the basket.

Alex Len wasn’t going to let him score that easily as he gave him a hard foul, and knocked him down, rejecting the score.

Young popped up quickly and tried to get a Len. In a few seconds he was trying to fight the entire Phoenix Suns team. No Lakers were really around to help.

The young guard wasn’t too happy that his team didn’t rush to help him out as he tried to challenge the entire team. This is what he told Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com.

“What I’m mad about is it was 1-on-5, I felt like,” Young said. “If somebody [from the Lakers] would have got in the middle, everything wouldn’t have escalated that much.”

Teammate Kendall Marshall defended the teammates decision to not join in on the fight.

“I understand where Nick’s coming from, he did get fouled hard and it wasn’t a basketball play by any means but at the same time, we got to understand our numbers [of available players on the roster] and sometimes you just got to win some and lose some,” Marshall said. “I don’t know if that was the smartest play at the time…

“I think Nick kind of saw what he wanted to see at the time,” Marshall said. “Obviously, like I said, you got to understand we got seven guys so maybe at that point and time you just got to chill out.”
