Video: Rajon Rondo’s Amazing Game 2 Performance

Footage of an absolutely crazy effort.

Last night in Miami, Rajon Rondo delivered one of the most remarkable postseason performances in the history of the NBA. Unfortunately for the Boston Celtics, Rondo’s 44 points (to go along with 10 assists and 8 boards in 53 minutes) weren’t enough to avoid falling down a 0-2 hole to the Heat.

    always has good form and rotation, think his shooting woes are more of a confidence issue than anything. Think about the dilemma a guard like Rondo faces when he comes up the court and his defender is playing back 5 feet off of him….scrap the set and take the open jumper, knowing that is specifically what the opposing coach wants you to do- or dribble it out and run the play?….difficult to take an open jumper with confidence in those cases, too much thinking affects the shot….he needs to be a scarecrow- a little like Russell Westbrook…(only a little). Don’t know if that’s the player he can ever be on this Celtics team…until the reconstruction….

    it was a great game by Rondo but I don’t get the “one of the best performances you’ll ever see in history” hype. I’ve seen Jason Kidd have outrageous games like this. I saw Iverson drop 45pts and 15 assists once. Dude shot 75% from the field too. Maybe cuz this game was in the playoffs??

    Rondo played his heart out last night… nothing but respect for the big homie!

    @sixurrs: it’s cause it was the playoffs, but it’s also bc it was such a high stakes game against a very tough defense. also, he had a great defensive game. he took d-wade out of the first half.

    @TBRK Totally agree. Yes the elbow is out a little wide, but when you watch him elevate and swish shots the way he did last night you can see it has nothing to do with mechanics. he’s just got to be a little more selfish and not get discouraged if he misses a few. I heard when he practices he makes everything, he’s just gotta clear his head and let it fly in the game.


    Props to Rondo for great game no doubt but dont beleive the hype. They lost the game.

    and DAinge was talking about trading Hondo?!

    Naw baba, other teams were putting his name out there in an effort to lower his value. The only way the C’s were moving Rajon was for CP3 or DWill and that wasn’t happening…

    love Rondo. Future of Boston, and such an exciting player to watch. Stat-wise: a Jason Kidd kind of player. Not the greatest shooter, but can score if needed. But as a Nets fan, what I loved about Kidd is that he could dominate a game without scoring. Rondo is the same way. Had a great night yesterday, exciting player to watch, and what I also like about him is that he’s…. different. You’re not sure what’s going on in his mind, but the kid sure can play.

    @baba You’re about thirty-five years late on that one.
