(NECN/CSN/AP)  - Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will be punished for Wednesday night’s brawl during the Celtics and Brooklyn nets game.

Rondo was ejected from the loss to Brooklyn after retaliating for a hard foul against Kevin Garnett with a two-handed shove on Nets forward Kris Humphries. A skirmish followed, and Rondo was kicked out of the game, along with Humphries and Brooklyn forward Gerald Wallace.
Rondo was suspended twice last season for losing his temper against the referees.
Coach Doc Rivers says he wants his players to show their toughness in more productive ways, like scoring and rebounding.
