KG has a fairly simple explanation for Rondo’s struggles of late — the Celtics’ point guard is playing hurt. From WEEI: “Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo‘s recent struggles have been well documented. While he appeared more explosive on the parquet, he still went scoreless and rebound-less while recording eight assists against the Pacers on Wednesday night. That (lack of) production led to this question posed to teammate Kevin Garnett: What’s wrong with Rajon Rondo? ‘Rondo’s playing hurt,’ said Garnett. ‘He’s hurting. He’s giving us everything he has. He’s grinding. He’s playing countless minutes for us, and he’s not playing like a washed-up guy.'”
