Rajon Rondo’s assist streak came to an end on Wednesday night in Boston after he was ejected for his role in a fight with Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries.
Rondo was upset with Humphries for fouling Kevin Garnett on a shot attempt, and the point guard began shoving Humphries. Jason Terry soon joined in, and the fight spilled into the stands.
Rondo and Humphries were both ejected. Gerald Wallace received a technical foul and ejection, while Kevin Garnett received a technical foul.
Rondo’s streak of 37 straight regular-season games of at least 10 assists in a game comes to an end thanks to the ejection. He ends up tied with John Stockton for second all time with that streak, nine games away from tying Magic Johnson for the record.
Rondo had 6 points and 3 assists in nearly 18 minutes at the time of his ejection.
This is just the latest episode for Rondo, who has a history of being a hot head.
In the screenshot below, you can see Rondo’s fist in Humphries’ face after he appeared to throw a punch:
The league decided to suspend Rondo two games for the fight.
Humphries must have been in a pretty decent mood after the game, because he cracked a joke on Twitter:
