Representatives from the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics were both disciplined due to behavior towards game officials in Sunday's contest between the two sides, the NBA announced Monday.

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended one game for his behavior towards a game official and failure to cooperate with a league investigation. Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry has been fined $15,000 for an inappropriate altercation with officials following the game, which ended in a 89-81 Celtics victory.

Rondo made contact with an official while disputing an offensive foul levied against him during a breakaway layup attempt. Video of the incident can be seen on the NBA web site here. He will serve his supervision tonight as the Celtics take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
