Rajon Rondo didn't have much to say about watching during clutch again. Obviously wants to be on floor but knows it won't always happen.

Jorge Sierra

Ty Lawson and Rajon Rondo are average starting point guards these days. That's how strong the position is. es.pn/1GlCDGN

Jimmy Spencer

Love the idea of playing Rajon Rondo as a floater from the FT line and just above blocks. Such a threatening place to cut, catch and turn.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Rick Carlisle says he is encouraging Rajon Rondo to push the ball more for Dallas to avoid going against as many set defenses

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle says the @Dallas Mavericks are really encouraging Rajon Rondo to push the ball more, considering the great defensive teams looming.

Boston Celtics with multiple triple-doubles... Larry Bird Rajon Rondo Antoine Walker Paul Pierce Evan Turner Yep, that's the whole list.

Paul Garcia

Since acquiring Rajon Rondo (12/20-03/23), the Mavs are 25-19. Offense: 103.5 PP/100 (13th) Defense: 101.7 PP/100 (14th) in those 44 games

Dunks in back-to-back games for Rajon Rondo!!!

5-game #Celtics win streak is longest since 2/25-3/8 in '13. Next up would be 7-gamer 1/27-2/10 in '13 - right after Rajon Rondo's ACL tear.

I thought Rick Carlisle was blowing smoke with his Rajon Rondo praise after last game. It'd be legit tonight.

Sean Highkin

Hitting buzzer-beating 30-footers is just what Rajon Rondo does.

Tim MacMahon

Rajon Rondo's poor shooting doesn't matter if he can get Mavs out running. He's done that really well so far tonight.

Mavericks up 59-48 and Rajon Rondo going to free-throw line. Bit of a rough patch here for Clippers.

Earl K. Sneed

What a sequence of moves by Rajon Rondo?! #DALvsLAC

Scott Souza

Always thought Elfrid Payton had some Rajon Rondo in his game. Generally, that's a compliment. Tonight (3-for-13 FTs) not so much.

Derek Page

Rajon Rondo is not a max player. Clearly lost a step since helping #Celtics to title. Could never shoot and now can't play D or make plays.
