Rondo suspended for two games for role in fight

Updated:

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended for two games following his role in a skirmish during Wednesday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Rondo was ejected from the loss to Brooklyn after retaliating for a hard foul against Kevin Garnett with a two-handed shove on Nets forward Kris Humphries. A skirmish followed, and Rondo was kicked out of the game, along with Humphries and Brooklyn forward Gerald Wallace.

Rondo was suspended twice last season for losing his temper against the referees.

Coach Doc Rivers says he wants his players to show their toughness in more productive ways, like scoring and rebounding.
