Rule number one in the playoffs is to not overreact to a call, no matter how severe it is.
Rajon Rondo did not follow this rule with less than a minute remaining in Sunday’s Celtics vs. Hawks game.
Rajon Rondo was ejected and will face a fine from the league and possibly a suspension.
He has a huge temper issue and the playoffs are not the time to argue over calls and it’s also up to his teammates to keep Rondo simmered down.
Hawks went on to win Game 1 in a 83-74 victory.
