    Rondo with 9 4rth qaurter assists and 5- 9 = 5-6 really.

    One shot was a half court heave at the end of the 3rd. 2 misses were rebounded by a Celtic.  He had 15 asists in the 2nd half and only missed 1 shot that cost the Celtics possession.
    He also had 2 offensive rebounds for 4 points!

    What's wrong with you.  Didn't you know that Rondo's usless in crunch time?

    Does anyone watch Koby on defense?  IF the game is close he will make a big difference.

     Kobe gets enough praise. This thread is about Rondo and the terrific game he played.

    To all those whose panties get all bunched up when defenders sag off RR - and swear that it marks the Celtics fatal flaw...  the sagging defender is free to clog the lane, pick off passes and double team (and block) Boston shooters.  Lets see how the strategy worked for LA's premium defender...   yes Kobe sagged off RR all game long...   and let's check the box..   I see...   38 minutes..  Zero blocks...   Zero steals...    hmmm.     oohh what's that?... the C's were just shooting hot  ... anyone can play point with three superstars hitting long range jumpers.....   lets check the shot chart...   hmmm    25 of 44 made shots  taken from 14 feet or less...  19 from 6 feet or less.                does it take a superstar to hit 6 footers?    Or does it take a floor general to create easy scoring opportunities?

    Last 4 losses - Rose, Brooks, Wall, Nash......he was left completely wide open most of the game as usual and clanged a bunch of shots that the best point guards view as warm ups....  Rondo was driving to the basket and flipped a shot up in the general direction of the backboard - it of course had no prayer of going in - the announcer (I love the national guys - completely unprepared and apparently watching a different game) says "Rondo was just trying to draw contact"..... really the worst free throw shooter in the league who averages one attempt per game where the best point guards average 6 was just trying to make contact?  Nothing could be further from the truth.... he avoids contact whenever possible, he avoids shooting whenever possible, he passes the ball to a hall of famer hoping the guy scores so he gets an assist and is pissed when that superstar passes to another hall of famer.   Then after passing it Rondo runs into the corner and hides but foolishly continues to call for the ball and only as an absolute last resort does the ball ever get back to him.

    Until Rondo does this again and again, he is still not the 4th quarter point guard. Assists or not majorly depends on his teammates. On a night Ray and Paul are off, Rondo may only get 5 or 6 assists. It is a team win or lose.

    True but is it Rondo's fault since he will still have hit them in the hands with the balll when they were wide open. Kind of like the Phoenix game. They were clanking wide open shots. Rondo should have had 15 assists if they were shooting normal percentages and the C's win by 15.

    The Washington game was the fault of Ray Allen,and the whole team stunk against the Suns. Rondo was 4 for 4 at 1 point from the free throw line in the game,so maybe he was trying to draw a foul.
