30 seconds remaining in the first half of the game between Celtics and Nets, Kris Humphries fouled Kevin Garnett on a jumper, hitting KG hard in the shoulder that sent him to the floor along the baseline. Rondo, who was near the hoop, immediately grabbed and shoved Humphries. More players got involved, including the Nets' Gerald Wallace, the Celtics' Brandon Bass, the jet, and a late-arriving Garnett.

Rondo, Humphries, and Wallace were all ejected, and all three, they can expect certain fines and possible suspensions in the next few days. Rondo finished with only three assists in 18 minutes, bringing his streak to an end at 37 games, which ties him at second all-time with John Stockton. Magic Johnson will continue to hold the record at 46 games.

Nets won the game 95-83.

Here is the full recap:

Roger Mayweather Said Floyd Will Fight Bradley and Pacquiao

Roger Mayweather said that he and his nephew met with Bob Arum a little over a month ago for a couple of hours and that they discussed fights with both Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. He said that:

"Floyd's gonna fight em, why wouldn't he fight them? Anytime you are getting that type of money, how the hell are you not going to fight them. He has to fight Pacquiao cause that's the fight people want to see and people talk about. If he wouldn't fight Pacquiao he would go down in history as a scared ******* champion, wouldn't he? If he didn't fight Pacquiao, OK then. My Nephew ain't scared of no Pacquiao."

I really hope this is true this time around.

Mike Brown, the Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown has been fired after a disappointing 1-4 start to the season, the team announced Friday.

"I have great respect for the Buss family and the Lakers' storied tradition and I thank them for the opportunity they afforded me," Brown said in a statement. "I have a deep appreciation for the coaches and players that I worked with this past year and I wish the organization nothing but success as they move forward."

Bernie Bickerstaff, the assistant coach will take over as interim coach for Friday night's home game against the Warriors.

Very hard working, maybe one of the hardest-working coaches that I ve ever been around," general manager Mitch Kupchak said. "The bottom line is that the team is not winning at the pace that we expected this team to win and we didn't see improvement. We wish Mike well and we're sorry it ended this way. So, we've decided to move in another direction and make a change."

Lakers will begin the search for a new coach.
