Paul, Rondo avoid discipline from NBA

NBA spokesman Tim Frank told that no action will be taken against Chris Paul or Rajon Rondo for their altercation on Boston on Sunday.

The league reviewed the matter and determined that neither a fine nor suspension were warranted.

The two point guards got into a confrontation on the floor in the Celtics' 97-87 win, for which both players were charged with technical fouls. After the game the two had to be separated while exchanging words. Paul then reportedly tried to enter the Celtics' locker room but was headed off by Celtics assistant coaches.
