Rajon Rondo Ejection: Celtics Guard Says 'Momentum' Caused Bump With Ref
Rajon Rondo's ejection from Game 1 of the Boston Celtics' Eastern Conference series against the Atlanta Hawks has many expecting the point guard to earn a Game 2 suspension.
EXCERPT
Rondo, however, denies he committed a violation, at least the "intentional" part of the rule. After the game, he said that it was his momentum that carried him into the referee as he argued a no call on a loose ball scrum.


Looking at the tape, one could make the argument that Rondo tripped on the back heel of the referee as both men walked away from the pile-up.
