WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) - Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was suspended by the NBA for two games on Thursday for starting a scuffle with Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries.
Rondo will miss Friday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers and Sunday's against the Bucks in Milwaukee.
Celtics center Kevin Garnett was fined $25,000 for his role in the scuffle, and Nets forward Gerald Wallace was fined $35,000.
Rondo was thrown out of Wednesday night's 95-83 loss to the Nets in the second quarter when he shoved Humphries into the courtside seats after the Brooklyn forward knocked Garnett to the floor with a hard foul.
What Rondo called a ``pushing war'' ensued, and Humphries and Wallace were also ejected.
