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. Rondo, who missed two games after jousting with the Nets’ Kris Humphries, provided the Celtics with an offensive spark, but didn’t care to elaborate much on his night. Here’s a sampling of the back-and-forth at the start of his postgame chat with reporters: Q: How did it feel to be back out there? Rondo: Good. Q: Was your adrenaline pumping for this game? Rondo: Nah. Q: How long did it take you to get back into a rhythm? Rondo: Only like two seconds. Rondo certainly wasted little time picking up where he left off. He chipped in 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go along with 11 assists, a steal and a rebound over 37:42. He did show some signs of rust, turning the ball over five times, but fueled Boston’s offense by pushing the ball up the floor in transition. “Having Rondo back was big for us, I thought he brought a lot...

Should Rajon Rondo be playing in 15+ year old Basketball Shoes?

As CLNSRadio’s resident Sneakerhead (even though I despise that term), I couldn’t help but notice Rajon Rondo’s choice of footwear so far this season. Rajon Rondo is under contract to wear the products of Nike Basketball, and at times their subsidiary Jordan Brand. Last year he regularly wore the Nike Zoom Hyperenforcer and the Nike [...]

Rondo, Mexico, and media mind games

Rajon Rondo returned from his two game suspension yesterday, but didn’t speak… thus raising the anticipation for his gripping comments today about his absence from the team. “I went to Mexico, couple days, watched the games,” Rondo deadpanned in his first meeting with reporters since last Thursday. “It was cool.” And thus began the song and dance between Rondo and the...

Rondo returns to lead Celtics to 104-94 win over Timberwolves

By Mike Shalin, The Sports Xchange BOSTON – His team was down in the early minutes of the second half Wednesday night, but Celtics coach Doc Rivers wasn't overly concerned. "I liked the pace. I liked the tempo," Rivers said, after the Celtics, getting Rajon Rondo back after his two-game league suspension, got hot in the third quarter and wound up cruising to a...

76ers nip Celtics in OT, 95-94

Celtics were up four at the half but after a lousy 3rd quarter, fell behind by as much as eight points.  Rajon Rondo showed why he's clearly  the Celtics' best player.  His all-around game becomes contagious and he nearly had a triple-double early in the second half (he'd achieve it later in the 3rd quarter).  But the Celtics comeback, which momentarily gave them...

Enemy Chatter: The Celtics made a lot of shots

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Minnesota. “They were making a lot of shots,” Wolves coach Rick Adelman said. “I can’t tell you [what went wrong] until I look at it, but I thought we were playing well. But in the second half they took control.” Blame one man:...

Did Doc calling the Celtics soft help light a fire underneath them?

It's been eight days, and three games, since Doc Rivers called his team soft following their rather embarrassing loss at home against the Nets. Since then the team is 2-1, beating the Blazers by 18, losing in Milwaukee by 3 (both of these games without Rajon Rondo) and then beating the Timberwolves by 10 last night. More than just the results though, the team has played differently...
