Celtics Hold Off Pistons Winning (118-111) Rondo: 11Pts & 18Asts
The Boston Celtics handled business tonight against the Detroit Pistons. Rondo had a very impressive game with 11 points, 18 assists and no turnovers. Rondo was doing it all on the court for the Celtics and took his teammates to the next level. Rondo had proved that he was the man tonight.
Brad Stevens on Rondo “Well, obviously he has a good effect on that, but I thought everybody affected that. I think we do have a pretty unselfish group moving the ball. We missed a couple of extra passes but not very many. But it’s good to see the body movement and ball movement. I think we’ve been pretty active on that end of the floor. Kelly (Olynyk)’s been a big part of that too, cutting and playing in space.”
Kelly Olynyk on Rondo “It is unbelievable you can really see him starting to excel even more he was great when he came back but now he is taking it to a whole other level.
Brandon Bass on Rondo “He has been playing well, I don’t know if it is he best but he is getting better , I would say he is getting better every game.”
Will Bynum on Rondo “We were just trying to back up off him and let him take outside shots. Sometimes when you back up like that, he’s (Rondo) able to run the team and got the guys the basketball when they needed it. Tough covering him tonight.”
Rondo just couldn’t be stopped and he will look to continue this for the next game against the Knicks on Wednesday
