^^obviously what rondo did deserved a T... and probably an ejection - but I can only assume a more seasoned ref would've understood the gravitas of the call and just called a T. That call swung the whole game from a 2point game with 40seconds right back into a 99% chance of losing.
it was just a hot head move. I'll bet you rondo won't get suspended though, just fined. They'll say he tripped on the ref and inadvertently bumped him.
the funny thing is you could see pierce and garnett laughing when rondo got tossed. then bradley tried to say sorry and (another bad move) touch the ref's shoulder and the ref snapped back when he was touched. i've seen that ref be really prissy with chris paul and kobe too.
