All you need to know is that in Paul Pierce's absence, Rajon Rondo stepped up with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists…. and all of his assists came in the 2nd half.
Look at that again.
That's just 2 less than KG and Sheed combined.
The other big number from Rondo is the 18 shots he took. He forced the issue today. He made the Orlando Magic play him.
Ugly… ugly game today… but the C's won it. So enjoy. Crack a beer, grab some leftovers, and enjoy.
