BRAWL in Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics Game: Rondo, Humphries, Wallace Ejected

There were fireworks at the end of the first half of tonight’s Nets – Celtics game. Kris Humphries committed a hard, non-flagrant foul on Kevin Garnett that Rajon Rondo took exception to. Rondo got up in Humphries’ face and pushed him back into the stands. Humphries fought back by ripping off Rondo’s jersey. On the side, Gerald Wallace and Garnett pushed each other. The result: automatic ejections for Rondo and Humphries and a second technical foul on Gerald Wallace, causing his ejection as well. Also, Garnett received his first technical foul for the exchange. The Celtics knocked down their ensuing three foul shots. At halftime, the Nets lead 51-38, despite leading by 21 at one point in the second quarter. The players are probably getting very energized for the second half. To watch a video of the fight, click here.
