    KG needs a post game. Your not going to get much improvement from either of them. Rondo also changed his FT routine again. He need to do the same thing everytime and deal with the results.

    Rondo is an almost allstar and is not worth a penny more than we are playing him.

    He starts off the season ablaze getting to the line 23 times in the first two games shooting in the 70's%. YOWZA!!!

    The past five games, he has averaged 3 trips to the line shooting in the low 40's %... against utterly inferior opponents. 

    Has midseason boredom set in already?

     Their on a 4 game win streak and the haters still come out. Rondo needs to improve his ft shooting, thats obvious. The Celtics once again had a near 50% shooting night from the field (without Allen) and that's no coincidence.

    The Cs are on a 4 game winning streak against teams with a combined winning percentage of a buck eighty seven.

    Lets not get too giddy just yet.

    Re: Rondo Needs to Improve FTs

    tonite i got frustrated in the fact that he resorted back to the old way he used to shoot his free throws instead of the way he displayed in the beginning of the season, which was a more fluid motion. but even him drawing the fouls i guess is good, and he doesnt seem afraid to go like in past seasons. you could tell such when he pulled the pierce with the pump fake-draw contact move. but i agree, if his free throws went down we would be in an even BETTER position.

    Fierce agreed, Rondo's FT percentage needs to get better. 

    Even more important than the percentage is his confidence going to the hole late. 

    To be fair, Lebron James also needs to improve his FT percentage especially in late game situations, and Lebron's a pretty good player. 

    I  don't think we have a big enough sample size right now to get too worked up, but yeah, it's an issue.

    No he doesn't.  They just need to make the basket bigger (or take the blinders off of Rondo's eyes, regarding obvious ways the C's need to do to improve)

    LeBron is shooting his highest FT percentage of his career right now.

    Rondo again looks like he doesn't want to be on the FT line.

     So you don't think he needs to improve his free throw shooting?

    this is what i have a problem with. if he didnt wanna go to the line then why would he add paul pierce's move where he fakes the shot and leans in when the guys in the air to draw contact? doesnt sound like someone that isnt trying to go to the line.

    Because he doesn't want to shoot (say.... the 22 footer jumper with time expiring) either. He's hoping to get bailed out and at least shoot freebies.

    Its the lesser of two evils for a reluctant shooter.

    i would consider that if he was doing it near the end of the shot clock..which has not been the case.

    Re: Rondo Needs to Improve FTs

    when has rondo ever been good at shooting in any aspect? Has he ever improved? Honestly I think we all need to move on and deal with the fact that Rondo will never be a good shooter, and wont ever put the time in to become a good shooter.

    Besides the fact that he can't shoot, he's one of the best point guards in the league and he's who we have, so we gotta deal with the fact he will never be an even decent shooter.

    He needs to improve a lot more than FTs... there are times where he is so nonchalent like he was at the end of the 3rd quarter... what the H was that all about?  he is so frustrating

    Rondo missing free throws and easy shots as he is tonight against the Pacers is a cross we will have to bear game after game. It does not appear his shooting is better this year. This will sink us if it does not change.  In tight games he is the only one that is going to be open.

    By what I see he is as bad at the line as ever.. there is no way he works hard in the offseason to improve his shooting...

    Zero points, 2 missed FTs, 1 assist. No shots taken in the 4th quarter.
