BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was ejected in the second quarter of Wednesday night's game against Brooklyn when he shoved Nets forward Kris Humphries to retaliate for a hard foul against Kevin Garnett.
Humphries was also ejected, along with Nets forward Gerald Wallace, who joined the fray under the Boston basket.
The punishment ends Rondo's streak of 37 consecutive games with at least 10 assists, which ties John Stockton for second-longest in NBA history.
The tussle started when Humphries fouled Garnett and knocked him to the ground as he shot from the right baseline. Rondo shoved Humphries, sending the skirmish into the stands. Wallace began shoving Garnett before the fight was broken up.
After reviewing the incident on replay, Humphries and Rondo were ejected. Garnett and Wallace were each given one technical foul; it was Wallace's second of the game, ending his night.
