While Rajon Rondo and the Boston Celtics literally started a fight with Kris Humphries and the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, it was not enough to pull out a win as Brooklyn beat Boston 95-83.
Rondo was ejected late in the second quarter after coming to the defense of Kevin Garnett, and in doing so ended his streak of games with double-digit assists. The Celtics tried to mount a comeback behind the efforts of Jason Terry and Leandro Barbosa in the second half, but the Nets were too much.
Brooklyn owned Boston on the glass and physically outmatched the Celtics. After the game Doc Rivers explained his disappointment in the effort and called his team “soft.”
