I remember him in 2012. Always aggressive and hustling.

Remember we lost that Game 1 against Atlanta and he bumped referee Marc Davis and got himself a suspension? That's the attitude I like of him. Go on to win Game 2 with the Paul Pierce tebow, and buried the Hawks the rest of the way.

I remember him carving us up last year with the Bulls before he went down with an injury.  IT was getting smoked.

These are the games Rondo lives for.  I'm not surprised he was carving up the Blazers defense tonight.  Not at all.

I missed the game but was watching the box score. Did he put the clamps on Lillard/McCollum, too?

He, Jrue and Ian Clark were all really solid on the defensive end. Jrue in particular

He was solid, but it was really just how he managed the game perfectly. He told everyone where to go on offense and defense, you could tell he was really leading them. He didn't actually do much, but he basically put AD, Mirotic, and Holiday in their spots and they carved them up. They got gassed at the end of the game tho when the Blazers came back. Pels don't have a very deep bench.

Man that was a close series. It took a miracle to steal b2b games in Chicago and finish them off in 6 games.

At least now Rondo is in the West. I would enjoy watching him erase the Warriors.

Rondo almost cost them the game by going into hero mode in the 4th.

He went away from what was working (4 FGAs through 3 quarters, with 15 assists), and decided that he’d “take over” in the 4th. The result? 5 FGAs (3 misses), only 2 assists, a turnover, and a visibly different philosophy.  The Blazers cut a big lead down to a couple of points, with Rondo being the only starter with a negative +/-.

4th quarter Rondo was “bad Rondo”.

Thanks, TP :). I just remember seeing that McCollum didn't have a field goal in the first half and Lillard was something like 1/5 and I was like...RONDO? Lol ;D.

Holiday was forcing shots too more than Rondo. And AD wasn't hitting anything either, aside from clutch FTs.

So Rondo went 2 of 5 from the field, playing a 12min quarter, had 1 turnover, 2 assists and that means he nearly cost them the game? Not seeing it. I think the Pels all looked tired and the Blazers made a run at home. Rondo didnt impact the 4th but I dont think he was bad.
