Humphries’ Nets teammate Gerald Wallace was also kicked out of the game.
It all happened so fast... watch the "Brooklyn Nets Kris Humphris Fight w/ Boston Celtics" below:
After the fight, Humphries jumped on Twitter to show off his battle scars...
Anyone know where I can get a quick Tetanus shot in Boston?
"When you watch film on the dude, he's always extra.....We watched him on film the last time we played him in Brooklyn and he kind of gave Paul a similar type of foul, two hands, had something on it. Dude's always been known to be out of control. He's always tried to play the tough guy or whatever role you want to do it. It was a little extra, but it comes with the territory and it comes with the game. ... I guess they're trying to hold up to the whole Brooklyn mentality."
Garnett defended teammate Rajon Rondo, who could be facing a suspension after coming to Garnett's defense.
"Rajon doesn't like anybody messing with teammates or messing with brothers or family...It's been how it is since I've been here. We have each other's backs out there."
Garnett said he was more concerned with the way the Celtics have played. Brooklyn's 16 offensive rebounds were one reason Celtics coach Doc Rivers called his team "soft" after the game.
"There's only one way to respond...I would never think that I would be on a team that would be called soft. I'm not a hardcore guy. I'm not a gangster or thuggish or anything like that. But I am what you call firm. I do play with a physicality.
"I don't really want to say that we're soft, because there's men in here. Where I'm from you don't call another man soft. ...Coach's assessment, it is what it is. Whether you take it as criticism or he's trying to make us better, it's your call."
