Joakim Noah and Kevin Garnett have a history against each other, and Noah had a funny response when asked about KG's trash talk.
Here are highlights from Rondo's performance during the game yesterday against the Chicago Bulls. Rondo dropped 30 points on 12-21 shooting, along with making 6-9 free throws. His efforts were unfortunately put to waste when the team lost in OT, 100-99. This was Rondo's season-high.

How impressive was Rondo's game yesterday...
A few days ago, we posted an article about Jason Terry's description of Rajon Rondo's really bizarre pre-game ritual:
"(Rajon Rondo's) routine is long-winded and it lasts all the way through tip-off.
It starts in the back hallway. He runs down a corridor and he throws the
ball to our team chaplain, who throws it back. Then [Rondo] runs out
into a circle, high...
Noah and Kevin Garnett, whom Noah once called “a dirty player,” battled throughout, drawing double technicals at one point.
“He’s a helluva competitor,” Noah said. “He’s always on some bull(crap), just trying to throw elbows, cheap shots, trying to get you off your game. He has been doing this a long time. But it’s all right.
“When we lose, I feel like he crosses...
Courtney Lee was one of the bright spots in yesterday's depressing loss. Here are highlights of his 16 points, 3 rebound, 2 assist, 3 steal night courtesy of OfficialCelticsHD.
After Rajon Rondo called out his teammates for not taking losses as hard as they probably should, there’s more coming out about the state of the C’s locker room.
The Celtics are a team — and that’s not counting Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett — that believes because they are Celtics, because Rivers is the coach, and because the organization has been successful...
Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers talk to the media following the Celtics overtime loss to the Bulls on Firday night.

I am not even sure why I continue to post these videos because nothing Rajon Rondo does anymore impresses me. I feel as though he has already accomplished everything in the NBA and performed every type of pass ever that there is no way he can create a new pass. Keep Calm and Rajon.
After the game last night Joakim Noah (son of French professional tennis player Yannick Noah) was asked about playing defense against Kevin Garnett. Here's what Noah had to say:
(I was) just playing defense. Just playing sound defense, just contesting his shots. He's a helluva competitor. He's always on some bulls---. Always on some bulls---. Just trying to throw elbows...

Kevin Garnett: 16 Points, 7 Rebounds
Garnett had a decent game tonight, from the boxscore stats, but his defense was pretty bad. Detroit's frontcourt put a beating on him. But it is not entirely his fault. He has no legitimate froncourt partner to help him out when the going...
On Friday night, after the Bulls beat the Celtics 100-99 in overtime, Joakim Noah said he didn’t want to talk too much, and especially not about Kevin Garnett, with whom Noah tangled again on Friday night and about whom Noah has had some pointed words in the past.
So on Friday, Noah did not go as far as to say that Garnett was a dirty player, as he has alleged before. Instead,...
The Celtics are just so inconsistent. Doc was right to call them out after this game. Hopefully that gets them going. They've proved that when they give the effort they're very good. I love the Bird/Laimbeer fight. My favorite part of that was afterwards when they told Bird that Laimbeer said he was just going for the ball and Bird said that he was just giving...
Celtics drop a tough one at home on Friday night, falling 100-99 in OT to the Bulls. Rajon Rondo led all scorers with 30 points and Jared Sullinger continued to beast on the boards, grabbing 15 rebounds. C’s now head to Detroit for a Sunday evening game vs the Pistons. Tip-off at the Palace is at 7:30pm EST tomorrow.

The Celtics have lost. This one really sucked. We had a lead with a few seconds left in both the fourth and in OT, yet we couldn't catch a break. Rondo played amazing: putting in 30 points, 2 rebounds, and 7 assists. Unfortunately, he fouled out mid-way through overtime. This one stings and I just want to move on, but I won't.
Tonight's underrated stat of the night...
