ATLANTA (AP) - Rajon Rondo lost his cool in the final minute of Game 1, and that means he won't be on the court for Game 2.
NBA announced on Monday that the Boston Celtics' star point guard has
been suspended one game without pay in the opening-round playoff series
against the Atlanta Hawks.
Rondo will sit out Tuesday night's
contest in Atlanta after sticking out his chest to bump referee Marc
Davis while disputing a foul call with 41 seconds left in Boston's Game 1
The NBA's assist leader scored 20 points and dished out 11
assists before he was tossed, leaving Boston with a huge hole in its
lineup. But the Celtics insist they're ready to move on without Rondo.
First-year player Avery Bradley will likely take over at the point.
