Report: Celtics' Rajon Rondo Suspended For Game 2 Against Hawks

Tuesday May 1st, 2012

It sure looked likely that Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo would be suspended for one game following his "bump" of referee Marc Davis in last night's Game 1 loss to the Atlanta Hawks -- and now according to Mike Dowling, sports anchor for WCVB in Boston, it's official. Rondo is out for Game 2.

Rondo was ejected in the final minute of Game 1 after a scrum for a loose ball broke out and Boston's Brandon Bass committed a loose-ball foul against Atlanta's Josh Smith. Rondo protested the foul call, he was given a technical, and when he persisted to argue whilst walking into Davis, he was immediately ejected. The Celtics lost Game 1 to the Hawks, 83-74. They'll be without Rondo tomorrow night when the two teams do battle in Game 2; they may also be without Ray Allen, who is still battling ankle bone spurs.
