Video: Rondo earns flagrant for clotheslining D-Wade, who calls it a 'punk play'

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The Celtics and Heat do not like each other. On a night where the Celtics were embarrassed defensively and a desperate comeback effort fell short, the game ended in ugly fashion when Rajon Rondo committed this flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade. Courtesy of our friends at SI.com:

That's not nice. It was retaliation for a hook move Wade put on Rondo in the third quarter that ended with Rondo picking up a technical out of frustration. Wade almost responded, but held back.

But it didn't end there. After the game, Wade was still was not pleased.

"It was a punk play," Wade told reporters in Miami. "He clotheslined me."

The Heat won 120-107. The two teams meet again Jan. 27.
