Rajon Rondo’s assist streak came to an end on Wednesday night in Boston after he was ejected for his role in a fight with Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries. Rondo was upset with Humphries for fouling Kevin Garnett on a shot attempt, and the point guard began shoving Humphries. Jason Terry soon joined in, and the fight spilled into the stands. Rondo and Humphries were both ejected. Gerald Wallace received a technical foul and ejection, while Kevin Garnett received a technical foul. Rondo’s streak of 37 straight regular-season games of at least 10 assists in a game comes to an end thanks to the ejection. He ends up tied with John Stockton for second all time with that streak, behind Magic Johnson’s record of 47 straight regular-season games with at least 10 assists. Rondo’s final stat line: 6 points and 3 assists in nearly 18 minutes. Video via The Point Forward

  • I didn't see the foul on Kevin Garnett. You say Hump hit him in the mouth..while Garnet's leg is wrapped around hump and then crashes to the ground (actor of the year award goes to Garnett). And Rondo had some previous issues and just lost it. Hump tried keeping his balance not knowing what Rondos crazy a/ was doing. Can Garnett play in the paint with out shoving players, anymore!?
  • I think they should both be fined. Rondo is a loyal team player and a passionate disciplined professional but does need off-the-court on-going leadership training as well as ALL NBA players. Competitiveness, sport's skill, talent & $$$$ breads focused professional athlete. More balance is required in the NBA. Make the calls at both ends of the court and refs should focus on protecting these passionate professionals from themselves. Get more refs to call all the plays so there is no room for "cheap" shots from frustration. Garnet can handle himself, but that was more than frustration coming from Rondo. Based on the tapes, if that was just a hard foul - call it. Ejection and/or fines for both yes - but suspended game(s)? I
    have seen many players push each other in the heat of games. Rondo looked like he pushed Humphrey as a professional statement to back off and Humphrey took it personal. (understandable but not professional). Rondo plays hard and takes a lot of "no calls", nature of the game. Where do you find the balance....more refs, "replays", and game rules! I love basketball!
