Mavs Suspend Rajon Rondo For Tonight’s Game Against Hawks Following Argument With Rick Carlisle

The Dallas Mavericks have acted swiftly and decisively to discipline Rajon Rondo following his on-court spat with coach Rick Carlisle. Dallas announced that the recently acquired former All-Star point guard has been suspended for tonight’s game against the Atlanta Hawks due to “conduct detrimental to the team.”

Here’s video of the tirade-laden exchange between player and coach:

Neither Rondo nor Carlisle explained specifics behind the argument after the game. It bears mentioning that the Mavericks’ second half run to beat the Toronto Raptors came after their starting point guard was benched in the third quarter.

Dallas and Atlanta tip-off from Phillips Arena at 7:30 EST.
