There will be no further action against Celtics guard Rajon Rondo and Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich for their altercation late in the first quarter of Game 6 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series Thursday night, said NBA spokesman Tim Frank.

With 28 seconds remaining in the quarter, Rondo and Hinrich collided on the right side of the court. Rondo grabbed Hinrich's arm and pushed him against the scorer's table. Hinrich then shoved Rondo before referee Ed Malloy stepped in between the two players as they exchanged words, with Hinrich bounding around like a boxer.

Rondo, already a target of Bulls fans after his hard foul on Chicago's Brad Miller at the end of Game 5, was assessed a flagrant 1 foul. Hinrich received a technical foul.
