Celtics G Rondo suspended for Game 2 vs. Hawks

ATLANTA (AP) - Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has been
suspended for Game 2 of the opening-round playoff series against
the Atlanta Hawks.

The NBA announced its decision Monday, less than 24 hours after
Rondo stuck out his chest to bump referee Marc Davis while
complaining about a call in the final minute of Boston's 83-74 loss
in Game 1.

Rondo won't be able to play Tuesday night in Atlanta when the
Celtics try to even the series. The NBA's assist leader scored 20
points and dished out 11 assists in the opener, leaving Boston with
a huge hole in its lineup.

The Celtics already have been playing without shooting guard Ray
Allen, who's hobbling on a sore right ankle. Avery Bradley will
likely move over to take Rondo's place at the point.
