Rondo suspended for Game 2
Frankly, I’m not all that discouraged about Game 2 because of this. Rondo wasn’t the reason we nearly came close to stealing that game on Sunday night. It was simply the fact the Celtics played with greater defensive intensity after the first quarter. The Celtics lost because the Hawks were lights out in the first and key players like Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett simply didn’t make shots. I’m confident Avery Bradley can play point-guard Tuesday night and that those two will hit their shots.
