The Celtics, despite losing Rondo for the season, won today's game. It took then two overtimes, but I'll take it. This was all defense for both teams, as the final score was just 100-98. Garnett led the Celtics with 24 points, followed by Pierce with 17 and Terry with 13. Lebron led the Heat with 34 points, followed by Allen with 21 and Wade with 17.
Today's USOTN goes to the performance of Leandro Barbosa. Barbosa had a great game as he had 9 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists. There is a chance that Barbosa will be Rondo's replacement along with Lee and Bradley. He played very hard today and I'm surprised that his stats weren't better. Thanks for the effort, Leandro.
It is impossible to predict what will happen to the Celtics without Rondo. It really depends on what Danny Ainge thinks. Is this a lost season? Can they still make a title run? Should they make a trade, or stick with what they have? We will just have to wait for the season to unfold.
