The Celtics were trailing the Detroit Pistons by a score of 66-54 when Rajon Rondo made a fairly large mental error. Rondo tried his best to draw a foul in the lane but the officials were not having any of it. Rondo got angry and started jawing at referee Sean Wright which was obviously not working. In frustration, Rondo then tossed the ball at Wright which took him by surprise and it nailed him in his chest. From that point it was a simple ejection call, and Rondo was lost for the game. The Pistons took advantage of the shorthanded Celtics and won the game by a score of 90-78. Video of the incident is below:
You can see the incident occur at the 2 minute and 5 second mark.

Rajon Rondo was suspended two games by the NBA for throwing a ball at a referee after not getting a foul call in the third quarter of the Celtics-Pistons game Sunday. Rondo definitely was fouled by Greg Monroe so it’s easy to see why he was frustrated. Tossing the ball at the ref was unsportsmanlike, but a two-game suspension seems excessive.
