That was the Rasheed that was at the TD Garden on Monday night, as Wallace was forced to the bench after picking up his third foul just before halftime and again when he was whistled for his fourth personal foul in the third. In his absence from the third quarter into the fourth, Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks went on a 21-10 run and turned a three-point deficit into an eight-point lead.
Needless to say, Wallace wasn't happy.
"You know, they don't like no tough defense on [Nowitzki], so of course I get a whole lot of [expletive] calls, but that's how the story goes," Wallace said, according to WEEI.com.
Wallace, who was playing for the first time in eight days, said he'll be ready when the Celtics take on the Mavericks in Dallas on March 20.
"I ain't worried about it," he said. "We'll see them again. Honestly, I can't remember which one the fourth foul was, there were so many bogus [calls]. I ain't worried about it. Like I said, we'll see again. We go down there in about a month or so. There will be retribution."
