Suspension Coming for Rajon Rondo?
The aftermath of Wednesday night’s brawl with the Brooklyn Nets could be costly for the Celtics, who may lose Rajon Rondo for multiple games if the league office levies a suspension.
Rondo and Brooklyn’s Kris Humphries were the central figures in a fight that spilled into the stands under the east basket with 29.5 seconds left in the first half. The NBA frowns upon 1.) altercations that spread into the stands and 2.) actions by repeat offenders.
Rondo had been suspended twice by the league in the past 10 months, tossing a ball at an official last February in Detroit and making contact with an official during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference first-round playoffs against the Hawks.
