MIAMI — Does Rajon Rondo think the Celtics-Heat rivalry is dead, as LeBron James said in November?

“That’s a tough question,” Rondo said. “It’s not a rivalry. But I still don’t like those guys.”

Another reporter tried to steer the interview in another direction, with a question about Rondo’s restrictions on minutes. Rondo answered the question, saying that his 20-minute limit — five minutes per quarter — probably would stay the same Tuesday.

Then he turned back to the other reporter.

“To go back and answer your question, I don’t really like anybody I play against,” Rondo said. “That’s just the type of attitude I approach the game with. We’re not friends on the court. Afterwards it’s a different story, but while we’re playing, I’m trying to win.”
