Red's Army Player of the Week: Rajon Rondo

Games this week:

@ Memphis:  18 pts (8-12 fg), 9 ast, 1 stl, 2 reb

Philadelphia:  13 pts (5-8 fg), 10 ast, 3 stl, 2 reb

Rondo has emerged as a steady hand to lead the Celtics offensively and defensively.  Against Memphis, he showed a confidence in a jump shot that he was dared to take.  He rewarded us by only missing 4 of the 12 shots he took.  While there weren't many bright spots against Philly, Rondo still put his teammates in a position to win.  What if Kevin Garnett had converted that perfect alley oop with :23 left and drained the free throw for 3 point play?  Then the Brand tip in would have tied the game, rather than won it.  While KG had good numbers in the end, his 5-14 shooting night against Philly cost him this award… and made Rajon Rondo our first ever "Player of the Week" winner.
