Rondo - the same player who was in such drastic need of a jump shot to complete his game last season - is shooting 52.6 percent (30-for-57) from the field after seven games.
Considering he shot 41.8 percent as a rookie, there may not be another player who is a better example of the New Three’s peripheral effect.
"Playing with these guys, I’m getting wide-open looks," he said. "Wide-open shots. With them on the floor, I don’t have to worry about finding good shots."
