The NBA Dribbled Out

Before I get to the recap, I want to remind all the basketball fans out there they may have witnessed the single greatest performance by a losing player in the history of the NBA. That may end up sounding like hyperbole tomorrow, but he’s got as good a case as anyone and there’s really no way to embellish what he did tonight.

Here was Rondo’s stat-line for game 2, where he played every single minute in a tough overtime loss ( that’s 53 for arithmetic averse folks): He scored 44 points (a career high) on 16 for 24 shooting, 2/2 on 3-pointers, 8/10 at the free throw line, 10 assists, 8 rebounds, 3 steals, just 3 turnovers and the undying respect of this blogger. 

Whatever happens in this series, Rajon Rondo should have carte blanche from Celtics fans for life (remember people were discussing a trade earlier this year), and a new-found respect (if he didn’t have it already) from every basketball fan the world over. 

To put it simply, I am in awe of him. Fortunately for Heat fans, their team was not, but HOT DAMN, what a peformance. I didn’t think he’d keep his 1st quarter production going like he did, but he just kept hitting jumpers all game and after playing every second, he hit back-to-back 3-pointers to force Wade to hit that last free throw. Just an amazing performance from an amazing player. 

I’ll remember Rajon Rondo’s game more than anything else that happened tonight. He was that good, and even though the Celtics lost, this game should go down in the pantheon of incredible performances by Boston Celtics players in the playoffs.
