Found November 12, 2012 on Red's Army:
Yeah, I know I’ve only got 4 wins to choose from, but I really liked the headline. Rajon Rondo casually ripped the Bulls to shreds tonight, coming just one rebound shy of a triple-double in a 101-95 win.  His stat line is just amazing:  20 points on 10-16 shooting, 10 assists, 9 rebounds and 5 steals. The Celtics really won this one in the first half, when they hung 58 points on the Bulls.  They built up a lead as big as 14 before the Bulls made their run in the 4th quarter.  Rondo’s scoring came primarily in the lane on a variety of lay ups.  That scoring set up his passing later as the Bulls overreacted to his drives late in the 4th, clearing the way for a pair of clutch alley-oops to Kevin Garnett at a time where the Celtics couldn’t buy a basket. The Celtics went 5 full minutes in the 4th quarter without scoring, letting the Bulls hang around and build a run nearly got the game as close as 3 points.  But if the Celtics could hit a 3 (3-16, and one of them came from Jared Sulling...

He was previously recorded as having 10 assists in the game and that left...

Your Morning Dump…Where Rondo has taken his game to a whole new level

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “He works hard at his craft,” Pierce said. “It’s developing nicely over the years. I feel that with me, Kevin (Garnett) being around here, I’ve been a part of that. It’s beautiful to watch him finally...

I’m a little crazy about Rondo’s 10+ assist streak

The Celtics have underachieved so far this season, but they were finally putting together a solid wire to wire effort Monday night in Chicago.  However, as I watched a 13 point 4th quarter lead dwindle down to 3 with five minutes to go, the score was not what concerned me; Rajon Rondo had only 6 assists. Amazingly in the final 3:12 of the game he assisted on each of the C’s final...

Rajon Rondo: Celtics in trouble when Kevin Garnett leaves floor

The Boston Celtics entered the season expected to contend with the Miami Heat (and possibly others) for the Eastern Conference title. They’re off to a 3-3 start, which isn’t bad, but certainly not impressive when you consider that two of the wins came against the Wizards. One of the main problems for the Celtics is their age. Kevin Garnett is 36 and Paul Pierce is 35, which...

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Only 5 games into the season it is way to early to panic about this team or jump off the bandwagon. I said this at the beginning of the season we need to wait about 20 games to really judge this team and make a judgement to weather this team is going to make a title run. The good with this Celtics team in the first 2 weeks has to start at the top with the play of PG Rajon Rondo....

Celtic's show improvement with win over Bulls

The Celtics had a pretty good team win against an injury riddled Chicago Bulls team.  This is not an indictment on the win, but how well they came together defensively.  The dreaded KG swoon did not occur.  When Doc took KG out of the game, the team did not fall apart. There is also Rajon Rondo, who is starting to find players in their preferred spots, with Jason Terry being...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Bulls

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Offense:  20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting.  He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line.  A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular. Defense:  He played the passing lanes...
