Does Rondo Have Confidence in Jumper?
It’s coming along slowly. And it’s not like he’s left with much of a choice when it comes to shooting it, especially at crunch time: “While he admitted earlier this week that he’ll always be a pass-first player, Rondo didn’t pass up the opportunity to shoot another crunch-time jumper in Wednesday’s 113-110 triumph over the 76ers … ‘Usually shots like that do give a player confidence, said Paul Pierce. ‘I remember my first game-winner that I made, back when I was in my first or second year in the league, I just felt like I could do it all the time in the game. It gave me a lot of confidence in those situations. So hopefully it could do the same for Rondo.”‘
