Rondo banned two NBA games for fight
14:59 AEST Fri Nov 30 2012

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was suspended for two games by the NBA on Thursday, a day after he was ejected from a game against the Brooklyn Nets for fighting.

Rondo was deemed the instigator of the brawl, which sent players sprawling into court-side seats as the first half of the clash between the Atlantic Division rivals was winding down.

Rondo took exception to Nets forward Kris Humphries's hard foul on Boston's Kevin Garnett.

Rondo charged at Humphries and swung at him, although the scuffle involved mostly pushing and shoving. No one was injured.

Rondo was thrown out of the game, ending his streak of consecutive contests with double-digit assists at 37.

Garnett was assessed a technical foul, while Humphries and Nets forward Gerald Wallace both received second technical fouls with the result they were also ejected.

Wallace was handed a $US35,000 fine on Thursday for escalating the altercation, with Garnett receiving a $25,000 penalty for his involvement.

Humphries was not punished by the league for the incident.

"Just a hard foul," Garnett himself said.

"I thought the antics after it were a bit extra, but it was a hard foul."

Even Celtics coach Doc Rivers didn't seem to think Humphries's initial foul on Garnett was that hard, although he said the fact that it came when Garnett was in the air made it dangerous.

"I thought it was a bad foul because Kevin could've gotten hurt. You know, he's in the air," Rivers said.

"He took a bad fall. And so Rondo saw that and probably reacted, and overreacted obviously."

Rivers was more concerned that Rondo and the other Celtics players were by that point frustrated by their own difficulties on the court in a game they ended up losing 95-83.

"We're a soft team right now. We have no toughness," Rivers said.

"And that (fighting) stuff's not toughness."

Rondo will miss Friday's home game against Portland and Saturday's contest at Milwaukee.
