Celtics’ Rajon Rondo suspended 2 games

Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended two games by the NBA for arguing a call and throwing the ball at offical Sean Wright in last night’s loss to the Pistons.

Rondo believed he was fouled by both Brandon Knight and Greg Monroe on a drive to the basket with about 3 minutes left in the third quarter and the Celtics trailing 66-54. After the no-call, Rondo picked up the ball after a Celtics’ 24-second clock violation and whipped it underhanded to Wright as Wright’s hands were up as he made the call.

Rondo then continued to argue the call and said, “That was a foul (expletive),” before being ejected for the first time in his career.
