morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here…
highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as
satisfying a good morning dump.
“Tony was phenomenal,” coach Doc Rivers
said. “He’s been terrific. He’s just doing the things we need him to
do. This is the best stretch that we’ve had him, as far as with this
group of guys, where he’s playing his role.”
“I had no idea, I didn’t know he shot 6 for 6 until I saw him do an
interview,’’ Rondo said. “You know, I looked him off on one, too. The
skip pass to Ray [Allen], Paul said he was open, too. He made sure he told me that right after.’’
Reminds of when we had Jalen Rose on The 2 Man Game… and he made sure to let us know that every time a player goes over to talk to his point guard, he's not asking how the family was. He's making sure the PG know what he missed.
At least Paul didn't go to him mid-game and say "hey, feed me so I can break a record." Would have been nice though.
