When Rondo scores....................the Celtics lose

Hey, if you want Chris Paul? Go get him. In Boston we live in a different world.

Rondo is the best QB in the NBA. This year, all facets of his shooting have improved...better threes, better PPG etc.

This makes Rondo a better player with his improved offense and helps the team win more..right?

Ran the numbers since May 1st last year. Read'em and weep.

*****

In Celtics losses since may first 2012 Rondo is averaging 17.6 PPG

In Celtics victories Rondo is averaging 14.1 PPG

When Rondo has a big scoring game he stops being Rondo and the team is more likely to lose...obviously. He is much better from outside this year...however, be reminded that teams are still "letting him shoot" and collapsing their defense away from him as the heat have always done. If he can continue to improve his outside shot, it will help the team by perhaps, creating one of the first Rondo double teams in NBA history and opening up the floor. In the meantime, Rondo needs to maintain his reputation as one of the greatest passers in the history of the game...you know? Just like Tom Brady.

Classic case of what team basketball is all about. Westbrook and Durant were rung up in the finals last year by a Miami team that plays better team basketball.

Last night, Rondo got 6 points and the Celtics handled Durant's and Westbrook's combined 55 points for a solid team victory. This is the only way C's can hope to return to the finals. Rondo must continue to be Tom Brady and let Welker and Gronk do all the scoring.
