[QUOTE]In Response to Re: GAME THOUGHTS: ORLANDO-boston 1-17-2011 : What no criticism of Rondo's shooting? How about a comment about how they didn't sag off Rondo? You criticize Rondo constantly ...what about last night? What did he do wrong last night?

why don't you just tell us everything that he did right.
i criticize rondo constantly- because he never changes. i wouldn't say he's over the hump with the shot my man. he hit 3 nice jumpers last night and that is good. but that doesn't make a career turnaround.
my biggest issue with rondo is a lack of aggressiveness. here is what i would have liked him to do more- take mighty moues down the post and foul him to the ORL bench. nelson is only about 5-9.
as it was, we got away with nelson being on the floor, he was pretty stinky. but in past games, he has done damage against us. i'd say any game it'd be safe philosophy to try to get nelson in foul trouble, it's not hard to do, and then the immortal C H R I S D U H O N is their floor general, and he is awful. not even a scoring threat.
then if they scrap the duhon project and put a redick out there thinking that hedoo the turk fills their point guard needs, that is where the quickness (coupled with aggressiveness) of rondo could really make a difference for us. redick couldn't guard rondo to save his life.
so, rondo had a good game last night with 10 points. would it have been a good game if nelson had dropped 18-20 on us? nope. nelson's done that a lot before. rondo has the tools to get the fouls on nelson. so i say why not do it whenever we face ORL.?
