“Point guards in general, they don’t think they should shoot, and then if you’re not a great shooter it’s even worse. Rondo’s had to deal with that but you’ve got to give him credit, he’s put in a lot of work.”
Collins also had pregame praise for Rondo: “The guy’s a great player. First of all, he’s competitive as can be. He’s got a great feel for the game . . . That’s all the growth process, and you know he’s an amazing player. I’ve got a lot of respect for that young guy.”
