What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

Much has been made out of the Celtics inability to close out tight games, and with good reason. Four of their seven losses have come by five points or less. Boston’s most frustrating loss of the season came at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers, where they blew a 17 point lead in the 4th quarter. While [...]

Is Rondo the “best” worst free throw shooting guard ever?

Is Rondo the “best” worst free throw shooting guard ever?

Rajon Rondo’s wretched free throw shooting against Phoenix (2-10) set off a firestorm of comments about his poor shooting from 15-feet. He’s a career 61% FT shooter and there’s been no improvement throughout his career.
