Then, as Celtics swingman Jae Crowder got the ball, he drew a foul on DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings’ center, which Rondo didn’t agree with. The disagreement is what provoked Rondo’s stare down of the referee, Bill Kennedy, and thus he was kicked out of the game.

Rondo ended up the night with stats of making five points, getting eight assists, as well as three rebounds and two steals in the 24 minutes he played. After he was put out of the game, the Kings are said to have looked very uninspiring and were soon being totally trounced by Boston.

Kings’ coach blames poor start for team’s 3rd loss in four games

George Karl, the Kings coach, said the reason for their third loss in four games is that they got a poor start and that it hurt to lose their lead guard prior to the end of the game.

The Kings had made a short try to cut the Celtic’s lead in the final quarter, but even though they first managed to get the lead down to 95-79, the combo of a dunk and a three-pointer shot killed them for the game, never getting beyond a double-digit point deficit.

With Rajon Rondo ejected it goes to show that the night’s performance was just not in the Kings’ favor.
