A man wearing a Rajon Rondo jersey was stabbed in the balcony area of TD Garden near the end of tonight's thrilling victory over the Grizzlies, according to and numerous other media reports.

An anonymous tipster has sent us the above video, which shows two men (both in Rajon Rondo jerseys) confronting each other in the balcony of what looks like TD Garden, while the crowd goes wild in the background. The man with his back to the camera flips off and throws something at the other guy, who responds by pulling out what seems to be a switchblade.

Here's how our tipster described the scene (lightly edited for clarity):

So the Celtics game is winding down. In the section next to us, some typical pill bros are getting more and more rowdy. The guys start yelling at each other for a minute and I decide to film.

One dude gives the other the finger (oh no) and it looks like he flicks something at him, beer? This pissed off the other white trash dude.

While this is happening, the Celtics just went ahead with a minute or so left. The place is going wild, so no one really notices the escalation. Then the dude pulls out a knife. You can hear the knife in the video. At the same other dudes start fighting each other and even at one point a girl is punching someone in the head. People are tumbling down the stairs.

Towards the end of the video you can see the knife guy in the corner darting across sections to sneak away.

Celtics win

The stabbing victim was taken to Mass. General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
