Humphries, Wallace ejected after fight
By Mike Mazzeo
A shoving match broke out between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics near the end of the second quarter of Wednesday night's game, which resulted in the ejections of Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace (he picked up his second technical) and Rajon Rondo. A technical foul was also assessed to Kevin Garnett.
Here’s how it all went down:
Humphries fouled Garnett as he was in the act of shooting with 26 seconds left. KG went down as a result of the contact, and the Celtics, thinking it was too hard of a foul, came to his aide.
Rondo proceeded to push Humphries, and Humphries reacted by putting his arms over Rondo’s head. Rondo and Jason Terry then pushed Humphries toward the stands, with Rondo appearing to throw a punch at Humphries. Meanwhile, Wallace was over pushing KG.
Several players had to be restrained.
