Rondo, Humphries, Wallace ejected for fight
The Associated Press
BOSTON (AP) — Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was ejected in the second quarter of Wednesday night's game against Brooklyn when he shoved Nets forward Kris Humphries to retaliate for a hard foul against Kevin Garnett.
Humphries was also ejected, along with Nets forward Gerald Wallace, who joined the fray under the Boston basket.
The punishment ends Rondo's streak of 37 consecutive games with at
least 10 assists, which ties John Stockton for second-longest in NBA
The tussle started when Humphries fouled Garnett and knocked him to
the ground as he shot from the right baseline. Rondo shoved Humphries,
sending the skirmish into the stands. Wallace began shoving Garnett
before the fight was broken up.
After reviewing the incident on replay, Humphries and Rondo were
ejected. Garnett and Wallace were each given one technical foul; it was
Wallace's second of the game, ending his night.
