- Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was suspended for two games for fighting with Nets forward Kris Humphries in Wednesday's 95-83 Brooklyn victory, the NBA said on Thursday.
Three-time All-Star Ronda rushed at Humphries after the Nets player sent Boston's Kevin Garnett to the floor with a foul under the basket.
Brooklyn's Gerald Wallace engaged Garnett after the Boston player got to his feet to join in the melee. Wallace was fined $35,000 and Garnett $25,000 for escalating the altercation.
The Celtics, struggling with an 8-7 record in fourth place in the Atlantic Division, will be without Rondo for Friday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers in Boston and Saturday's contest against the Bucks in Milwaukee.
