Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended for two games for fighting with Nets forward Kris Humphries in Thursday's 95-83 Brooklyn victory.

Three-time All-Star Rondo rushed at Humphries after the Nets player sent Boston's Kevin Garnett to the floor with a foul under the basket.

Brooklyn's Gerald Wallace engaged Garnett after the Boston player got to his feet to join in the melee. Wallace was fined $35,000 and Garnett $25,000 for escalating the altercation.

The Celtics, struggling with an 8-7 record in fourth place in the Atlantic Division, will be without Rondo for Saturday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers in Boston and Sunday's contest against the Bucks in Milwaukee.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
