Celtics win big in Milan preseason game

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Here's a postgame thread along with some quick analysis of Rondo's big game.

I have the game taped and will review it more in detail later, but for now, here's a postgame thread along with some quick analysis of Rondo's big game.

Green Street » What we learned from Celtics second preseason game

We may as well start the season now because Rajon Rondo is clearly ready. Rondo repeatedly torched Milano’s defense, burying his first seven shots, including a 3-pointer and four free throws in the first quarter as the Celtics left Europe with a split of their exhibition schedule after a 105-72 victory. Everyone goes under screens on Rondo and everyone knows that when he’s making jump shots there’s basically no way to guard him. It’s way too early to tell if Rondo has conquered his shooting demons — especially at the free throw line where he made all 10 of his attempts in two preseason games — but it’s worth pointing out that he shot a respectable 39 percent on his jumpers from 16-23 feet last season. Still, the early returns are encouraging and Rondo looks like he’s ready to take his game to another level this season.
