If Boston would have lost even without their top players that would have been tremendicly embarassing; Charlotte is a damn mess and we all know it. How often do we see a teams winning record lower than the team that holds the best record in the NBA losing record?
On the topic of the Celtics, Rondo has 10+ assists in the past twenty-one consecutive games, I love it. Rondo has plenty of downsides IE: His free throw shooting, his 3-point percentage is a 21.6% and completely inconsistent and he simply cannot be depended on to close games. But to get a double-double points to assists out of him so often is such a gift.
Imagine if Rondo had a bit of Westbrook/Rose(whomever is your favourite scoring PG for arguements sake) it would be absolutely insane. Just a bit of food for thought, but I will leave this topic on this: We wouldn't have the play maker that is Rondo today without Doc Rivers. I wouldn't go as far as saying Rondo is a Peyton Manning on the court, but like many College Basketball Analysts like to say, Rondo is an extension of Doc Rivers and in the case, to the maximum.
I can't wait to see the Playoff Tree come April 26th.
