Rajon Rondo benched after shouting match with coach Rick Carlisle

Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle and Rondo began to engage in a shouting match. Rondo was benched for the duration of the game, and Monta Ellis and Devin Harris performed ably in his stead to lead the Mavericks to a 99-92 victory.

Carlisle stormed out on the American Airlines Center court to call a timeout and shouted at Rondo, who appeared to be ignoring a play call from the bench as he brought the ball up the floor.

Rondo responded by shouting back at Carlisle. They exchanged heated words for much of the timeout, with assistant coach Jamahl Mosley stepping in front of Rondo at one point to prevent the point guard and coach from getting in each other’s faces.

“Well, it’s an emotional game, and we had a difference of opinion,” Carlisle said. “There was an exchange, and then in my mind it was over.”
