Rajon Rondo (18 pts, 8 assts) played his game to perfection tonight against the Pistons. He routinely sliced his way through the Detroit defense and either drove to the hoop or passed to an open teammate. He even nailed a 3-pointer. Oh yeah, he also had 3 steals and harassed Allen Iverson.
The bench, specifically Tony Allen and Eddie House, helped break this game open with a 28-point 2nd quarter. It was clear Detroit wanted no part of this fight. Down 9 at the half, Rasheed and friends came out flatter than the Olsen twins. At one point in the fourth, the Celtics lead reached 27.
The Celtics are now 4-0 against their supposed contenders in the East – Detroit, Cleveland and Toronto.
