Nick Young didn't seem happy with anyone on Wednesday night.

The Los Angeles Lakers' swaggy swingman was ejected for trying to fight several members of the Phoenix Suns after absorbing a hard foul during the second quarter. With the Lakers trailing 36-35, Young was driving toward the basket when rookie center Alex Len clobbered him.

Young was understandably unhappy with the foul and went on to make sure Len wasn't the only player ejected by retaliating. The Suns' Morris twins would get involved -- with Marcus picking up a technical foul of his own -- as Young tried to get even with the 7' 1" center out of Maryland. After being separated from Len, Young found himself within arm's length of Suns point guard Goran Dragic. The close proximity didn't work out well for Dragic.

Len was assessed a flagrant-2 and ejected. Young was also tossed for his role in the ensuing altercation. After the game, he surprisingly seemed more upset with his own teammates than Len and the Suns.

"What I'm mad about is it was 1-on-5," Young told reporters, via The Associated Press. "I felt like if someone would have gotten in the middle of everything it wouldn't have escalated as much. I felt bad for Dragic. He was right there. I didn't throw (a) punch. I was trying to shove people out of my way. I was getting pushed further back. It was more trying to get out."

Regardless of who was truly at fault, Kobe Bryant did not seem pleased by the Lakers' performance in the 121-114 defeat.
