Rondo picked up his 10th assist with 51 seconds left. Should he have been playing?
The only exciting part about the Celtics meltdown in Motown earlier tonight, was whether or not Rajon Rondo would reach 10 assists for the 34th consecutive regular season game. Rondo had just seven assists to his credit with under five minutes to go before picking up the final three as the Celtics...
After Rajon Rondo stayed on the floor in the final minutes of a blowout loss to the Detroit Pistons, many fans around the league have accused him of stat-padding. This is not the first time we've seen Rondo manufacture stats, such as passing up easy 2 on 0 layups or trying to score in the very last second when a game is over.
I understand the criticism, but at the same time...
Rajon Rondo does things on the court many dream of. He will never win a 3-point contest or run a kids basketball camp on how to shoot correctly, but the man is fun to watch. His recent achievements are historic.
Rondo has his eye on breaking Magic Johnson’s NBA record for consecutive regular-season games with double-digit assists. Johnson respectively had 46 games in row followed...
Rajon Rondo has already extended his double-digit assist streak to 33 games in the first half as the Celtics lead the Raptors 47-42. Rondo had seven assists in the first quarter after making the game-time decision to return as the starting point guard. Rondo, who sprained his right ankle Wednesday night against the Jazz, showed [...]
Celtics 107-89 Raptors What a difference a Rondo makes. After a one game absence with a sprained right ankle, Rajon Rondo returned as the Boston Celtics cruised to victory against the Toronto Raptors. With many of the Celtics’ games so far this season being rather tough battles, Boston were due an easy victory. When they [...]
Asked over and over about what his streak of consecutive games with double-digit assists meant to him, Rajon Rondo came back with the same answer every time.
“It means my teammates are making shots,” he said repeatedly after the Celtics’ win over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday, when he extended his streak to 33 games. And that was that, pretty much.
Rondo’s streak reached...
Before I get into this, allow me to clarify that this post is not being made to criticize Rajon Rondo. My intent is to question the suspect manner in which NBA scorekeepers count assists. In the following video, which has been provided by the NBA’s official Youtube channel, you will see each and every one of the 20 assists Rondo was credited for in Saturday afternoon’s matinee...
Rajon Rondo returned from a 1-game injury absence to lead the Celtics past the Raptors 107-89 with 20 assists. Jason Terry (20) and Paul Pierce (19) paced the Celtics balanced scoring effort as the C’s finally put together a wire-to-wire shellacking this season. The green looked a bit green in the second quarter when they allowed Toronto to trim a quick 16-point lead to 5,...
During the waning moment’s of yesterday’s lopsided loss to the Detroit Pistons, Doc Rivers told his team it was obviously going to lose. And then he encouraged his players to help Rajon Rondo in keeping his double-digit assists streak alive. (CSNNE)“Why not? You guys keep talking about it, so I figured give him a shot at it.”“When I called a time-out,” Rivers recalled...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Let’s not sugar coat this sucker. It was pretty bad all the way around. So I’m not going to waste my time running through every single player.
But there were are a couple of bright spots:
KG shot 6 of 9. I don’t know why he didn’t get more shots,...
When Ray Allen bolted from the Boston Celtics, they were desperate to find a replacement at the shooting guard position with Avery Bradley out until at least December and Jason Terry delegated to bench duties.
Courtney Lee was their man, getting him by swapping a handful of players to the Houston Rockets.
Somewhat of a journeyman, Lee had landed with three different squads over his...
Jason Terry scored 20 points and Rajon Rondo tied his season high with 20 assists as Boston beat Toronto 107-89 on Saturday.
Paul Pierce added 19 points and six rebounds and Kevin Garnett scored 15 for Boston, which took a 17-point lead in first quarter, then held off several runs by the Raptors before pulling away midway through the second half.
Rookie Jared Sullinger had his...

Nobody outside of Detroit expected the Pistons, who were a measly 1-9 before Sunday's game, to defeat the Celtics. Well, they did...by 20 points. It was a little more than twenty-four hours after the C's had beaten the Toronto Raptors (after a late push by Boston) that the Pistons and Celtics tipped off in the Motor City. Boston came in winning three of its last four games...
