    In Response to Re: Celtics vs Nets 3/14/2011 : Doc was beside himself on that possession.  Rondo stands with the ball holding it and is left only with a 3 pointer at the end of the clock.  Late in the game, I sure hope West is in and not Rondo.   Our point guard is truly lost in the slow down half court end of game situation.

    Maybe it's because he doesn't drive to the basket because he doesn't want to risk getting fouled and having to shoot freethrows

    Kudos to Davis for an outstanding effort (16 and 14).  Can't find much else to be pleased about.

    Big, big game by Rondo. Where are those people who said rondo was the best point guard in the league...oops that's right that pick that dropped him was the reason for his perfomance.

    Suuuuure it was lol.

    Rondo isn't our MVP.  Rondo is what we have but at the end of games, we need West.  Just like Perk and Krstic aren't in at the end of games for Doc, he needs to NOT have Rondo in at the end of games.   At least not until he's making some kind of contribution again.

    Our two most productive players were ONE and TWO in minutes played (34 for Ray and 32 for Baby, Rondo also played 32).  How can this "back-to-back" phenomena factor in when the two guys who play the most minutes have the best production.  It's inexplicable!

    Especially when the starters played unusually light minutes the night before.  It's becoming just a crutch for not getting it done.

    Tonight, Rondo and Pierce did not get it done.  Pierce was all over the place hustling so you could tell his effort was there.  I honestly cannot say the same for Rondo.  Oh well, let's get ready for Wednesday.

    Good night board.

    Let's see now.
    Our last 3 losses have been to the Clippers, the Sixers, and the Nets.
    Good thing we won't be facing any of these teams in the Finals.

    Its his foot!  No, its his hamstring.  No, its the fact that Perk left and he's brooding.  no, its the fact that he's tired from too many minutes.  No, its that he's just head strong and doesn't listen.

    Who knows and who cares - just get him off the floor more often!

    Yes, Petey, at some point, you have to stop the excuses and just say the team isn't focused in these situations.  There's no excuse for what they did tonight.

    Goodnight.

    The C's responded nicely with Arroyo in the game, cutting the lead down to 6. Things picked up. The C's had the momentum. Some zip in the game.

    At the 6 minute mark, inexplicably... back comes Rondo.

    The rest is history. C's falter badly. Doc doesn't have the guts to play the better performing PG, Arroyo, at crunch time.
     
    Houston, we have a problem!

    Rondo's ego is to huge now for that to happen, and Doc doesn't have the testicular fortitude to take him out, even when he is playing horrible.  Remember Rondo's hissyfit live on national TV when Doc try to take him out against the NY KNicks.

    Im sure Doc is cuddling Rondo right about now, patting him on the back and whispering how it isnt his fault... that hes the leader of the team and has to demand KG, PP & Ray to pick it up.

    Now, can u imagine any of the Big 3 respecting what Rondo has to say when they watch him dog it and play so lax?

    My thoughts exactly. I'm still bothered about trading Perk during the season. In his debut with the Thunder, he had 6 points and 9 rebounds, not bad.

    Why not wait til we WIN the damn championship, THEN trade him in the offseason.

    If we don't win the title this time...it will go down as one of the DUMBEST trades ever.

    I don't think Doc will allow Rondo to play like that in the playoffs. This is one of Doc's experiments. He's trying to find out how Rondo will react in the pressure cooker. It's just unfortunate that the Celtics will lose games in this kind of experiment.

    Good point Karl.  And, by way of your line of reasoning, I hope KG or the other vets have a man to man talk with him after Doc is done with the handholding.

    I'm sick and tired of this team, they don't see the urgency to win games. They let easy games slip away from them, they're losing games against poor teams, funny!!!

    The Lakers is catching up on us, and the Bulls are now No. 1 in the East. And we might end up at No. 2 spot, facing the Knicks!!!

    We can't get out of the first round.

    Actually I see us dropping to 3rd in the East. The Heat have caught their stride now, they're manhandling the Spurs as we speak. I'm sure they will hit a winning streak.

    If we can't beat the Nets as is, keeping the second spot will be a task in itself. I see us going into a funk right now with new players trying to learn the system and Rondo struggling.

    What??!!  You mean last year's playoffs, the NBA Finals, and especially Game 7 was not a pressure cooker?  You act like Rondo's never played under pressure before.

    Kobe was roaming and not paying attention to Rondo all game long in Game 7, right?

    Rondo will have to shoot and make the shot under pressure. Similar to the Spurs in 1999, when Avery Johnson learned how to make open jump shots in crunch time.

    Every games right now is important the Lakers, Heat, Spurs, Bulls knows it very well that's why they're playing very well at this time. But the Celtics couldn't see the urgency to win games, i just couldn't understand it.

    How could you lose to the Nets team at this point of time?

    I'm not going to deny the fact that when Rondo was out there in Game 7 of the 2010 Finals it was like playing 4 vs. 5. That's why Doc is leaving Rondo out there, this season, even if he sux big time. If Rondo figures it out then the Celts will be very hard to beat.

    A more likely explanation: My guess is that Rondo is putting doc in the pressure cooker to see just how much sh*t doc will tolerate. (More constructive defiance in action.)

    Its a battle of the wills... and Rondo is likely to prevail... at least in the short run.
