In response to Petey62's comment:
Melo and Joseph still have spots on the Celtics roster so we will have to waive one player to sign one.
Besides, I live in Washington, watch him closely, and Pargo is not someone that we should sign, especially at the expense of waiving someone.
Getting a backup to Rondo is a secondary priority. Getting a rebounding big is our top priority.
Our 3 guard rotation played really well last night without Rondo. Our "Truth" just did not close it out. We had less Rondo-like "table-setting" but more overall offensive production from the 3 guards.
And in the end...the offense bogged down because no one could run the offense.
See, I disagree that the offense bogged down because no one could run the offense. We got pretty good offensive efficiency throughout the game including the 4th quarter. There was a stretch where we went something like 5 straight possessions shooting jump shots, that missed, that got the Nets back into it.
We got good shots. Even without Rondo, we got very good movement and spacing in the 4th quarter. We got some very good looks. We just did not knock them down. And when we depend on Pierce to close things at the end, he failed to close. We relied too much on the perimeter shot and with the only guy who was attacking the rim, Barbosa, on the bench, Doc chose to live with the jump shots.
But I definitely don't think the offense bogged down.
