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

Three-time All-Star Ronda 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 US$35,000 (NZ$42,000) and Garnett US$25,000 (NZ$30,000) for escalating the altercation.

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