New Orleans Pelicans guard Rajon Rondo and Los Angeles Lakers Isaiah Thomas both got to start their All-Star breaks a little earlier than expected.
The two point guards got into an altercation in the first quarter of Wednesday’s (Feb. 14) game at the Smoothie King Center and were ejected after receiving two technical fouls with 33.3 seconds remaining in the period.
It was the first time Rondo was ejected from a game this season.
Rondo left the game with four points and five assists in eight minutes.
