Rajon Rondo suspended 2 games

WALTHAM -- Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended for two games following his actions in the 2d quarter of Wednesday night’s game vs. the Nets. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge announced the length of the suspension on WEEI Thursday afternoon. In addition, Brooklyn’s Gerald Wallace was fined $35,000 and Boston’s Kevin Garnett was fined $25,000 for “escalating the altercation,” the league announced.

Rondo was contrite but not overly apologetic Thursday afternoon as he answered questions for the first time since the incident. It was pushing and shoving by Rondo and Nets forward Kris Humphries that set off a fight between players from both teams with 29.5 seconds remaining in the first half of Wednesday’s game. Rondo said he ran over to Humphries to express his displeasure for what he thought was a hard foul on teammate Garnett.
