Re: Rondo

Seriously. His performance was sufficient, but it wasn't that great. He shot 5/14 against Billups in game 1, which almost serious cost the Celts.

Once Billups was out, the Knicks did an absolutely turrrrrrrible job of stopping the ball. In game 2, Rondo scored something like 24 or 26 points in the paint. Crazy. I give him credit for exposing the Knicks' weakeness, but he did not have to work for much, if anything.

I'm super pissed that Chauncey got hurt, because I think this could have been a decent series if New York stole game 2.

Miami's PGs suck and Rondo could torch them. I'm expecting the Heat to put Lebron or Wade on Rondo. If they don't, I'll be surprised. If Rondo puts up similar numbers with Lebron or Wade on him, that will be impressive.

It's never been Rondo's scoring that's impressed me.... it's the OTHER things that he does that win people over.

You're right though... he'll be tested against MIA. Gonna be interesting for sure.... if Wade guards Rondo then that'll leave Chalmers on Allen. I do think that it'd be a smart move on MIA's part though to try to "cut the head off the snake".

Wade will definitely be guarding Rondo.

If I was MIA I'd start Lebron on Rondo and Wade on Pierce. Lebrons a better roamer/help defender and would cause a lot more problems in zoning areas than Wade would IMO. If Wade can body Pierce up the Celtics would have a really tough time scoring with Lebron roaming to the side the ball is on.

That's a damn fine idea.... reminds me of when the Bulls played the Pacers and put Pippen on Mark Jackson.

As long as wade isnt guarding ray allen, they will be fine. Wade falls asleep too much on Ray Allen and he kills em. I think both Wade and Lebron can guard Rondo or Pierce.
