"I think he's going to be great for our scorers as well as I'm sure we’re going to get help from him defensively." -- TChandler on RRondo
Tyson on Rondo: "Understanding what's going on out there, great timing, anticipating the ball and just causing havoc out there."
"U try 2 take things away from him and try 2 keep him out of the paint. But he just gets 2 the spots he wants 2 get 2.'' -- DHarris on Rondo
Thursday's 5-player trade is by far the most players changing in an "in-season" Mavs trade since 7-player deal w/ Washington in Feb 2010
Tyson on Rondo: "He's going to get a huge (reception tonight) because people around here understand what he's going to bring 2 this team.''
"The thing that I love about him is he’s a scoring threat, but he would rather pass the ball.'' -- Tyson Chandler on Rajon Rondo
If Mack Brown was out of the studio this year I missed it...he sounded good as the game analyst today on the New Orleans Bowl
The last time a team as depleted as the Spurs rolled into Dallas, the Donald Sloan-led Pacers put a beat down on the Mavs.
This will mark the 6th time in 9 games on 2nd night of a back to back that the Spurs have sat at least 2 if not all 3 of their Big 3
For San Antonio: Parker, Leonard & Mills were already out w/ injuries anyway. Only Duncan and Ginobili are being "rested"
From Spurs website: Duncan, Parker, Manu, Kawhi Leonard, & Patty Mills are listed as out for tonight's game vs Mavs. (730p, TXA21)
Spurs announce Parker (hamstring), Kawhi (hand), Manu (rest) and Duncan (rest) will sit out tonight against the Mavs on Rondo Night.
Rick Carlisle said all players involved in Thursday's trade passed their physicals, so they're all eligible to play with their new team.
From Carlisle this morn, all physicals on both ends of trade were passed last nite, clearing way for Rajon Rondo to play v Spurs. 730, TXA21
Tyson Chandler said when a play was called during shootaround this morning, Rajon Rondo Knew where to go quicker than he did.
Tyson Chandler says Rajon Rondo was already going through plays with familiarity in shootaround. "It took me 2 months to do that."
ICYMI: Spurs, who visit Mavs 2nite (730, TXA21), 1 of 3 teams to play consec. 3OT gms. Minneapolis Lakers & Baltimore Bullets did it in 1951
30 minutes until my bday
And I do believe that was strike 3⃣!
"I talked to Michael Finley who played with him in Boston and he said he’s got one of the highest basketball IQs." -- Mark Cuban on Rondo
The bigger the bow the bigger the diva- clearly
Possible Pop just calls up the D-League Spurs to play the Mavs tomorrow night?
Those Baltimore Bullets won one of those 3OT games but lost one to the Minneapolis Lakers when they couldn't overcome George Mikan's 39 pts
Interesting note on broadcast, Spurs first team since Baltimore Bullets in Dec. 1951 to play back to back 3OT games
On strength of career night for Damian Lillard the Blazers finally beat the Spurs in 3OT, 129-119
If u missed it Spurs went up 6, Portland w/ 8-0 run, Cory Joseph tied it with 23 seconds left
You have got to be kidding. Triple OT for the Spurs again
Spurs had 6 point lead in OT. Blazers rally and force double OT. Tying 3 by Lillard with 13 seconds left
Reminds me of a shot Danny Green had here in Dallas that would've won a game but replay showed he still had fingertips on the ball @ buzzer
Another OT game for the Spurs tonight, tied at 97 after regulation at home vs Portland. San Antonio plays Mavs here tomorrow (730, TXA21)
Sounds like Kawhi Leonard will be out a few more days, including game tomorrow night here in Dallas w/ torn ligament in his right hand
Mavs on Saturday likely to get a Spurs team without Kawhi, Tony and maybe Timmy (2nd night of back-to-back).
Carlisle will work with Rondo and Powell tonight and again during tomorrow's shootaround.
Rondo: "I plan on getting a great reception tomorrow." Cuban: "You will."
Carlisle & Rondo both indicate that the plan is for him to be up to speed on the system & start tomorrow vs the Spurs (730, TXA21)
Carlisle will spend extra time with Rondo and Powell tonight and tomorrow to get them ready for tomorrow vs. the Spurs.
Carlisle: "On the assumption that all the physicals are cleared, Rajon will be in the starting lineup tomorrow night."
Rondo: "I love to compete, I love to win. We joked about me being the second leading rebounder coming in."
Rondo: "I'm excited to play with Dirk. He's still got a lot left in the tank."
Rondo says J-Kidd is a good friend, and he sees a lot of similarities in their games.
Donnie Nelson on Rondo-Kidd comparisons: "They both have the same size heart."
