In response to prakash's comment:
I am not sure where the scoring point guard requirement comes from. Yes, Rondo can't be a scoring liability. But we are talking 2nd. game back here with serious minute restrictions. Plus a team that is really not spacing well yet in the system.
You can keep making excuses, but the spacing will never be well if you're not a threat from beyond the arc.
Next game is at Miami.
A perfect game to see how to defend Rondo.
Cole will just stay at the FT line and roam.
Rondo will be open from beyond the arc all night.
I am not making excuses. I expect the team to struggle. I have said that multiple times. It will not be easy to integrate Rondo quickly. It will take time. We are talking about a player that is trying to figure out what he can do. Plus everybody is adjusting to timing and figuring out what to expect. Did you see AB miss on a bunch of gimme passes from Rondo? But he did better with others. Why?
