(Lakers’ coach Luke) Walton delivered a scathing post-game press conference, criticizing the officiating and calling out Bucks personnel that interfered with the altercation. Luke went full “Hit ‘em Up” after the game.
“I’m gonna need an explanation on it because it made no sense to me,” a fuming Walton said when asked for his thoughts on how the situation was handled.
”So if D’Angelo didn’t push him, I would’ve been pissed off at D’Angelo. He did the right thing. For the NBA to say that the two of them did the same thing and just cancel each other out is absolute crap to me.”

A Warriors source said the bruise got worse overnight, so Iguodala was held out of practice on Monday. The bruise is slightly below the knee.
Iguodala had an X-ray on Monday and it came back clean, but the team still listed him as doubtful Monday evening.
