A few words about Rondo’s night

A few words about Rondo’s night

Recap: Sometimes grit and balls isn’t enough

An epic performance by Rajon Rondo and a tremendous "grit and balls" effort by the Celtics tonight was marred by wretched officiating.  I didn't want to bitch about the officials.

Except… It changed the game in the Celtics favor…. because Rajon Rondo went absolutely effing nuts.  He scored [...]

Boom.  Drop the mic. Leave the stage. This show is over. [...]
