Rajon RonDoin’ it!


Rajon Rondo is rapidly making a name for himself as one of the most dynamic point guards in the League.  He puts a lot of pressure on the ballhandler, thus making tough for opposing guards to initiate their offensive sets, (this is a big cog in Boston’s defensive wheel, as it allows others be very aggresive in the passing lanes).

Last night New Orleans visited Boston at home for huge game, as Boston was looking to go 22-2 for the first time…….IN FRANCHISE HISTORY.  With Boston’s lineage…this says alot.  Coming into the game even the announcers couldn’t stop commenting on how “chippy” this game would be, especially at the guard spot.  First off, Chris Paul initiates alot of physical contact, yet I still thought that Rondo composed himself well, by not backing down and hedging everytime Paul went for his patented 3-option pick-and-roll. 

Stat Lines:

Paul– 20 pts (5/16 from the  field), 6 boards, 14 dimes, and 3 turnovers in 42 minutes.

Rondo– 10 pts (4/12 from the field), 6 boards, 2 dimes, and 2 turnovers in 32 minutes.

Most of Paul’s damage came while Eddie House was in the game.  Eddie played hard, but just couldn’t seem to get enough pressure on Paul.  Worry not though, Eddie made Paul pay multiple times on the offensive end, as Paul repeatedly went underneath screens and allowed House to knock down huge three after huge three.

The real topic is that many around the league believe that Rondo is a legitimate All-Star.  The announcers discussed this topic multiple times throughout the night, while also pointing out that Rajon got his first, (of many to come), career triple-double the week before.  Rondo is a student of the game with all the tools, (with the exception of a developing jumper), and teachers around him, (i.e. Garnett, Allen, Pierce, Coach Rivers), to reach his exceptionally high ceiling.

Keep it up Rajon, the blue nation is pullin’ for ya.

oh yeah, Paul Pierce dominated throughout…forgot to say that.

I’m out…Bryan
