Both Rondo and Humphries were ejected as was Gerald Wallace after receiving his 2nd technical foul of the night. Kevin Garnett also received a technical but remained in the game.
After heading to the locker room Humphries took to Twitter to show his wounds from the shoving match.

And while some may think that Rondo’s reaction to Humphries’ foul on Garnett shows that the Celtics are just a tough team, Celtics coach Doc Rivers disagrees.
“If I’m Brooklyn and the league, you’ve got to think we’re pretty soft the way we’re playing,” Rivers said. “We’re a soft team right now; we have no toughness.”
“That stuff’s not toughness,” Rivers said. “All that stuff, that’s not toughness.”
