It's clear as day that Rondo's teammates haven't become accustomed to Rajon's ways. I don't think that was the case in the Knicks loss, the effort was awful, and you could say Rondo was apart of the problem, or he was just continuing to work on his timing and getting to know his team. Sure, Rondo had time on the bench watching this team play, but that doesn't translate in every case.
So what did Rondo think of the Celtics getting picked apart?
"We didn’t take anything away tonight. We gave them whatever they wanted. They are a three-point shooting team and they did that. They took away stuff from us and we didn’t take away anything from them."
"It was effort. It was everything. We didn’t do anything well individually and they exposed us."
The Knicks nailed 10-of-20 from three-point land. The Knicks controlled the paint out scoring the Celtics 44-36. The Celtics did limit the Knicks to just 8 fast break points. So the Celtics did some good things. What did the Celtics in, lack of effort, and the Knicks wanted to shove it to the Celtcs.
