Doc: "Rondo Is The Key"

I included Rondo in the Big 4 as my biggest keys to the series, but Doc narrowed it down a bit for us.

Point is, Rajon Rondo key - BostonHerald.com

"I think (Rajon) Rondo is the key to the series," the Celtics [team stats] coach said after yesterday’s practice. "He has to be disruptive defensively with his feet and his ball pressure. How well he handles them trapping off of him and not guarding him will be the key for us winning. When he’s effective, our whole team is effective."

Rondo, told of Rivers’ comment, didn’t break from his usual deadpan while saying, "Doc’s putting pressure on me, huh?" he said.
