It appears that Rajon Rondo and Rick Carlisle’s chemistry is less than 100%. And it’s going to cost the hot headed point guard. Per Robert Raiola:

Glad to see an organization side with their coach. Too often we see athletes dictate the direction of a team re: Dwight Howard, Vince Young, etc. The Dallas Mavericks have Jim Carey’s back.
The heated exchange took place last night during a timeout, in which Carlisle and Rondo were found jarring back and forth.
While it’s clear Rondo’s benching was related to the scuffle, Rick Carlisle danced around the question in the post game presser.
It will be interesting to see this play out as we head into crunch time over the next month.
Mavs beat the Raptors, 99-92.
