Rondo Suspended Two Games for Fight

Rajon Rondo will be out of uniform for the Celtics the next two games as a result from his altercation with Kris Humprhries last night. 

The Celtics will be without their starting point guard against Portland on Friday night and against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday. 

Could be worse for the Celtics and Rajon, but two games is on the lighter side of what was predicted for their star player. 

Last night, Rondo got into it with Kris Humphries after watching the Nets forward foul Kevin Garnett to the ground. The altercation led into the stands and resulted in  Rondo, Humphries, and Nets forward Gerald Wallace to be escorted to the locker rooms. 

Before learning of his suspension today , Rondo spoke to reporters about last nights brawl. 

"That's the only thing about it. But I was sticking up for my teammates. I didn't try to start a fight. I'm not trying to be a bully. I just didn't think the play was fair that he made on Kevin, that's all."
