I don’t want to condone what Rondo did, but let’s recap: Rondo’s team just lost Game 5 by one point, giving the Atlanta Hawks life in the series. On the last play of the game, with a chance to win, Rondo had an isolation in the corner against Al Horford, who quite recently missed 58 straight games with a torn pectoral muscle. Rather than accelerate past Horford and become the hero, Rondo inadvertently lost the ball and thus the game.While he was waiting for his press conference to discuss the loss — and his part in it (remember, Rondo also didn’t wake up in this one until late in the fourth quarter) — Rondo stood with his family outside the media room, probably just wanting a quiet moment. A cameraman, likely just following orders from his boss (read: none of this was the cameraman’s fault), wanted to get footage of Rondo speaking with his family. The footage didn’t seem entirely necessary since nothing at all was happening. Rondo had apparently already asked the cameraman to stop...

Rondo goes after cameraman after game

Loved the comment by Barkley on Rondo being angry about his jacket choice. Expect Rondo let out his anger on the Hawks in Game 6. I mentioned before the series started that Al Horford was a key. With him back of course the Hawks are a different team. Rusty or not adding an all-star talent back to a team is a huge boost. With that said, I think that the Garden crowd and an angry...

  (Courtesy of Yahoo! Sports) Boston Celtics fan, and CLNS Radio regulars, know well that I have not been the first guy to give Rajon Rondo a pass, when it comes to his emotion responses to critics and referees.

Rajon Rondo Has Some Misguided Anger

Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics got upset at a cameraman Tuesday night following the Celtics loss to the Atlanta Hawks for filming him.

Rajon Rondo's Final Play Overshadows Another Gutsy Performance by Celtics Point Guard

Rajon Rondo dribbled frantically, unable to find an opening against Al Horford's hounding defense. He stutter-stepped, crossed over, tried an in-and-out dribble and then crossed over again, losing the ball as he transferred the ball from his left hand to his right. The clock expired with the Celtics failing to get off a shot and missing an opportunity to close out their first...

Rajon Rondo rocks Vinnie Styles in post game press conference following game 5 loss to Hawks

The Boston Celtics weren’t able to close out the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night to move on to the second round of the playoffs.

Hawks 87, Celtics 86: Atlanta extends the series to Game 6

Three different times during tonight’s Game 4, I exhibited the Boston Celtics’ lifeless bodies and properly identified them as deceased. Three different times they jumped straight out of the coffin doing the Bernie and making quick comebacks. But the Celtics could not get a shot off on the final possession after Rajon Rondo improbably stole an inbounds pass to give them a last...

Atlanta survives wild fourth to stay alive: ATL: 87 BOS: 86

Both teams traded double digit leads in this game. The Boston Celtics in the second quarter and the Atlanta Hawks in the third. Neither team enjoyed such a lead in the fourth as the teams traded punches and the game was never far from a one or two possession game for very long. Both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett scored 16 points for Boston but Al Horford, playing for the second...

Which Hawks Player Would Most Like to See on Celtics?

The Boston Celtics have found themselves in a fairly competitive opening-round series with the Atlanta Hawks. While Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo have been superb throughout the five game series, some of the Hawks big name stars have given the Celtics fits in trying to close out the best-of-seven. Joe Johnson has posed plenty of problems for Boston, as the Celtics first...
