Rajon Rondo Benched After a Heated Exchange With Head Coach Rick Carlisle

Things got heated between Mavs point guard Rajon Rondo and head coach Rick Carlisle last night. During the third quarter of the Mavs 99-92 comeback win against the Raptors, Carlisle wanted Rondo to call a timeout with about 8:10 left in the third quarter, however Rondo wouldn’t call it forcing Carlisle to rush the court and call it himself.

An irate Carlisle gave it to Rondo as he walked towards the bench, only to have the feisty point guard cuss back at him. Rondo’s words got him benched for the remainder of the game and the Mavs played some great team basketball to rally back and beat the Raps.
