The showdown between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets turned heated, culminating in a verbal exchange between LeBron James and Rockets head coach Ime Udoka, leading to Udoka’s ejection.

Expressing dissatisfaction, Rockets forward Dillon Brooks pointed fingers at the referees.

“I tried to push LeBron away from it. The refs just let it get out of hand. A terrible group out there that was reffing, and they lost control of the game, and it was very inconsistent,” he said, as reported by Adam Spolane.

“That’s what you get from inconsistent refs, it’s a whole bunch of nonsense.”
