As you have heard by the now, the Celtics go as Rondo goes. Well this must be the case in game 6 tomorrow. Rondo has been good in this series, but Jameer Nelson has been torching him and the Celtics the past 2 games. I know Rondo hasn't been 100%, but he'll need to be if they want to close out on Friday. Lets comparre the 2 all star point guards in this series.
Pts. Ast. Reb. Blks. Stl. Fg% Ft% 3pt% TO
Rajon Rondo 14.4 8.4 3.6 0.0 2.2 43% 57% 0% 2.6
Jameer Nelson 18.2 4.2 5.6 0.0 0.2 44% 86% 41% 3.8
As you can see, Jamer dominates in every aspect except assists and steals. If we want the Celtics to close out in game 6, Rondo must be more aggressive. I don't know about you, but when i watch the Celitcs and Magics play, Rondo attacks the basket much less than when he's playing another team. It could be because Dwight Howard is roaming the paint, heck, who wouldn't be scared.....But yea, we must see Rondo constanly atacking the rim, I mean, he can blow by ANYBODY in the league, so why not blow by Nelson? Rondo must also not let Nelson catch fire though. All defensive first team right?. So my predition for Rondo's stats is..
24 pts, 12 ast, 6 reb, 3 stl, Celtics win, advance to finals
Whats your prediction?
