BOSTON -- Sasha Pavlovic was at his home in Montenegro this summer when he received the phone call informing him he had been traded from the Boston Celtics to the Portland Trail Blazers.
BOSTON Within the first three minutes, the Boston Celtics had delivered a hard foul, blocked a shot courtesy of good help-side defense and opened with a 7-1 run.
BOSTON With Rajon Rondo serving the first of his two-game suspension for fighting Brooklyn's Kris Humphries tonight, Boston has no choice but to turn to its bench.
WALTHAM A league source has confirmed that Rajon Rondo will be suspended for the Boston Celtics' next two games for an incident in the second quarter of Boston's 95-83 loss on Wednesday.
Rajon Rondo started a mini brawl (scuffle, scrum, whatever) on Wednesday night that ended up sending players from the Celtics and Nets into the stands.
It would not go unpunished.
