Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo took a jab at Miami Heat forward Dwyane Wade on Thursday over the flagrant foul he received at the end of Tuesday night's season-opener in Miami. "I mean, I don't think it was a hard foul," said Rondo. "[Wade] sold it a little bit. That's basketball. They were up, he drove to the hole, I didn't want to give up a layup. Simple as that. I didn't yank him down, or dirty plays that you've seen him play in the past. So that's what it is." Wade was unhappy with the foul telling ESPNBoston.com: “I got my kids watching so I stopped myself but it was a punk play by him,” said Wade, who had a team-best 29 points in the win. “He clotheslined me.” Wade hinted he might have a response the next time the teams play on Jan. 27 in Boston. “I’m here to play basketball, man,” Wade said. “If you want to do something else, then go do something else. Boxing, this is not it. I was glad I was able to stop myself in that very moment and move on from it. We’ll see next time we play.” Celtics coach Doc Rivers defended Rondo saying, "[Rondo] grabbed him around the shoulders, it wasn't that hard. So I think it’s much ado about nothing, personally. And I hate going back to [Rivers' playing] days, but, my gosh, that would have been maybe a foul. I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. But I guess it is."
