Rajon Rondo Suspended Two Games For Tossing Ball At Referee

Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics has been suspended two games without pay for throwing a ball at an official and striking him in the chest during yesterday's game against the Detroit Pistons.

Rondo threw the ball at official Sean Wright in the third quarter of the game. Rondo was visibly frustrated about the lack of a foul call after he drove to the basket. The Celtics guard was assessed two technical fouls and was ejected from the game. Rondo now has seven technical fouls on the season. However, the ejection was the first of Rondo's NBA career.

Rondo will miss Celtics road games against the Dallas Mavericks (Feb. 20) and the Oklahoma City Thunder (Feb. 22).
