In response to ktronic's comment:
Stevens said in his press conference that Lakers were actually trying to foul Rhondo but they got picked off which explains why he was open.
It doesn't matter.
We all saw the game.
That means you also saw how Kendall Marshall was ALWAYS going under the screen every time Rondo was in a pick and roll.
If Rondo was a shooter, Marshall would not go under the screen.
The other time Rondo had a chance to give the Celts the lead, with the score at 105-104 Lakers, Rondo missed an open jumper.
Again, Stevens' system will fail if you don't make open outside shots.
Translation - change is coming!
Why did they make him captain if they are going to trade him? The press conference sounds like it was a decision from the higher up.
