Boston's Rondo, Brooklyn's Humphries, Wallace ejected during brawl

Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and Brooklyn forwards Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace were ejected during a first-half fight at TD Garden.

The first half featured six technical fouls and a noticeable foul-shooting disparity. Brooklyn had attempted 17 free throws to Boston's two into the closing seconds of the half, but Humphries was whistled for a hard foul against Kevin Garnett on the baseline, including an extra push that infuriated both Garnett and Rondo, who charged at Humphries and started a brawl that included pushing, shoving and perhaps a swing or two.

When the dust settled, officials ejected Rondo, handed a technical foul to Garnett and second technicals to Humphries and Wallace, leading to the ejection of Brooklyn's two starting forwards.

Rondo's ejection ended his streak of double-digit assists at 37 games, matching former Utah Jazz point guard John Stockton for second on the all-time list. Magic Johnson holds the record at 46 games. Rondo had three assists when he was ejected.
