Enemy Chatter: Wade kept Rondo away from the rim


We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Miami.

“Certain shots hopefully I make that I missed. If not, I’ll still make an impact on the game. I’m not a one-dimensional player.”

He proved that with his defense against Rondo, who closed with a playoff career-high seven turnovers and shot just 2 of 7 for six points when defended by Wade. He shot 6 of 7 against all other defenders.

According to ESPN, Rondo’s average attempt came from 13.6 feet when defended by Wade, with none inside five feet. Against all other defenders, his average shot attempt was from 4.6 feet.

“He had a big chore defensively, and he was making a lot of plays for us, disrupting a lot of things that they were trying to do,” Spoelstra said.

Gee, I wonder how Wade was able to keep Rondo away from the rim? Could it be the six feet cushion he was giving Rajon?

Rondo MUST hit his jumper if the Heat are going to guard him this way.

    Jeeze. Do these D.Beach assholes know anything about basketball? For them going to a Heat game is just a fun thing to do between dinner and clubbing.

    Rondo got to the rim any time he wanted in the first half. In the second half, Doc took the ball out of his hands, because he obviously wanted to ‘get Paul going’.
