Apparently, the fight was deeper than what we saw on the court.

via Complex:

NBA analyst Shams Charania reported that someone from Rondo’s family went after Chris Paul’s wife, Jada, in a confrontation. The family member said some inappropriate comments to her after the fight, which pissed off Paul even more according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen

The altercation came following the tense closing minutes. Rondo was coming to the defense of Brandon Ingram after he pushed reigning MVP James Harden in the back. Paul, who appeared to be wiping his face prior to swinging on Rondo, says the Lakers guard incited the altercation by spitting on him. However, Lonzo Ball, claims the altercation began because Paul touched Rondo’s face. Regardless, the NBA is now investigating the incident and is expected to deal suspensions to both sides before Rockets-Clippers game on Sunday night.

It’ll be interesting to see what kind of fallout happens.
