According to Cowbell Kingdom, Evans is out tonight with knee woes.

Any word on Rondo?

Is he set to go or will he be sitting out again?

Rajon Rondo - G - Celtics
Updating a previous report, Rajon Rondo (hip/thigh) will play on Sunday.
With Leandro Barbosa also back in action and Avery Bradley's return around the corner, there's not a lot of upside for Jason Terry and Courtney Lee.

Leandro Barbosa - G - Celtics
Leandro Barbosa is with the team and is warming up to play against the Kings.
The Celtics might need him with Rajon Rondo (hip) questionable. Barbosa didn't start when Rondo was suspended and isn't a very attractive spot-start player since he's been inactive for 11 days.

Offensively, the Kings rank 19th in the league averaging 0.901 points per play, according to Synergy Sports data. Sacramento is actually a top 10 spot-up shooting team (1.009 ppp) and that makes them dangerous one night after Golden State scorched Boston with jumpers.
Dangerous spot up shooting team.

I imagine that is Brooks, Thornton, Fredette and probably Salmons and Thomas too.

Delighted Rondo is available. I think he can do a lot of damage to the Kings. Their PG defense (A.Brooks, I.Thomas) is probably the worst in the league and their big man help defense is weak too.

Great situation for Rondo to come in and dominate the game.

A "must-win" game in my opinion.  Something feels different about this game.  I expect the C's to win.

They better play with some intensity tonight after yesterday's disgraceful showing.

Pierce with the long three against the shot clock. Nice to see Paul hitting early.

I am glad Collins is starting again. He brings so much value. :'(
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

Terrible pass by Jason Terry. Isiah Thomas with a steal and a rebound. He is working hard.

Pierce can take that jumper off the pick and roll every time he wants against Cousins. Cousins isn't showing on the pick at all. He is standing a few feet off of Paul. I'd like to see Jason Terry look for these scoring opportunities too against Cousins in PnR.

I love Garnett's rebounding. Those long arms of his. All those smaller guys jumping for the ball but KG just snatching it out of the air before any of them even have a chance to touch the ball.

I.Thomas just leveled Collins off the ball there. Ran right through him on the screen.
