Things became testy and then some between the Boston Celtics and the visiting Brooklyn Nets last night.
Rajon Rondo, Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace were all ejected following a long shoving match that spilled into the stands. After the game, both teams gave their versions of what happened out there.
According to Celtics guard Jason Terry, Kris Humphries isn’t so tough — he just acts like it.
From the Boston Herald:
Jason Terry, who played with Humphries during the 2009-10 season in Dallas, later tore into his former teammate. “That was unnecessary,” Terry said of Humphries’ foul on Garnett. “Some guys are tough and some guys pretend to be. He’s one that pretends to be. Maybe that’s the role Avery (Johnson) wants him to have.”
Asked what kind of player Humphries was in Dallas, Terry said, “Soft.”
Over on the Nets’ side, Kris Humphries tweeted out a photo of the scratches he got during the melee.
Reggie Evans, meanwhile, compared Rajon Rondo to a bug. Per the NY Daily News:
“That’s just like a mosquito in your face. Eventually, you are going to swat at the mosquito, right?” Evans told reporters. “You aren’t going to let mosquitos in your face. You are going to get bumps all over your face. So you have to knock the mosquito down.”
The Boston Celtics visit the Brooklyn Nets on Christmas Day for the rematch. Fun times.
