Rajon Rondo

  1. Kevin Garnett on trade rumors: “I bleed green; I die green.”

    Feb 6, 2013, 11:08 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    While Kevin Garnett trade rumors seem to fly around everywhere — the latest is Denver was interested in him but he was not in them — it’s not like most trades because KG is a Celtic icon who has a no-trade clause. He can shoot down any deal. And he doesn’t sound like a guy…

  2. Shorthanded Lakers take down Nets in Brooklyn for sixth win in their last seven games

    Feb 5, 2013, 11:33 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-LAKERS-NETS

    The Lakers came into Brooklyn on Tuesday to face a Nets team that was 12-4 over its last 16 games, and did so without the services of Dwight Howard, who was out again due to pain in his right shoulder, and Metta World Peace, who was serving a league-mandated one-game suspension for his actions against…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  4. Paul Pierce with the step-back dagger three vs. Clippers (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2013, 12:06 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    With Rajon Rondo out, even more of the late-game shot creation responsibility for Boston is going to fall to Paul Pierce. He had a lot of it anyway, but the Rondo option gone so it is all Paul Pierce. Pierce sinks the dagger into the Clippers comeback attempt in Boston with this step-back three here…

  5. Boston wins third straight because of their… offense? Yup.

    Feb 3, 2013, 5:05 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Courtney Lee

    The Boston Celtics won their fourth straight game without Rajon Rondo — this one against a title contender from the West (well, contender unless you ask Charles Barkley) — because of their high-powered offense. You read that right. The Celtics without Rondo and Jared Sullinger abused the fifth-best defense in the NBA this season on…

  6. Jeff Green throws down two monster dunks on the Magic (VIDEO)

    Feb 2, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Despite the recent troubles in Boston, where the Celtics have seen Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger go down in the same week with season-ending injuries, the team managed to keep it together enough to take care of a slumping Orlando Magic team on Friday. The play off Jeff Green was a huge reason why. Green…

  7. Report: Teams calling Celtics to see if Terry is available

    Feb 1, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Now with Jared Sullinger joining Rajon Rondo on the “done for the season” list, the vultures are circling. Other GMs are looking at the Celtics and want to try and pick the carcass clean. We’ve talked about teams inquiring about Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but then Ken Berger of CBSSports.com dropped this nugget on…

  8. Report: Jared Sullinger out for rest of season with back injury

    Feb 1, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jared Sullinger reacts as he loses control of the ball against the Miami Heat in the first half of their NBA basketball game at TD Garden in Boston

    Boston could not really take another punch to the gut, and they just got one. Rookie and crowd favorite Jared Sullinger is out for the rest of the season with his back injury, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo sports and the NBC Sports Network. He will undergo surgery on his back, confirms A. Sherrod Blakely…

  9. PBT Podcast: Talking Rudy Gay trade, angry Westbrook, Celtics without Rondo, and Lakers without Dwight

    Feb 1, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless tries to defend against against Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to review the Thursday night TNT games. We discuss the Grizzlies without Rudy Gay, and whether or not the team has a chance to actually improve before the end of the season once Tayshaun Prince and Ed Davis get acclimated to life in…

  10. Danny Ainge doesn’t want to trade Pierce, but he’ll listen to your offer

    Feb 1, 2013, 9:48 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    With Rajon Rondo out for the season and three weeks to the trade deadline, all eyes in Boston fall on GM Danny Ainge: Is he going to blow the thing up? And if he does, would he really trade Paul Pierce? A guy who wants to retire a Celtic? Ainge was on WEEI radio and said…

  11. Brook Lopez replaces Rajon Rondo in All-Star Game

    Jan 30, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    It is a smart call by the league — Brook Lopez will replace Rajon Rondo on the Eastern Conference All-Star team, the league announced. The fans voted Rajon Rondo into a starting slot for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star Game, but his ACL injury has him out for the rest of the season. David…

  12. Paul Pierce: “I want to retire a Celtic”

    Jan 30, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Since Rajon Rondo went down with an ACL injury, I had not been alone in calling for the Celtics to start making big changes — it’s time to transition to the next phase of the Celtics. But saying that and actually doing something like trading Paul Pierce is something else entirely. He is a 14-year…

  13. Rajon Rondo to get second opinion on knee, may talk with Adrian Peterson

    Jan 29, 2013, 10:14 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    There are two people that right now are the gold standard when it comes to knees and ACL recovery. One is Dr. James Andrews, the renowned surgeon who everyone wants to do their knee repair. The other is Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the poster child for bouncing back from an ACL after he came…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Bobby Flay loves a chipotle pepper. • Finally, something NBA related you can…

  15. Andrew Bynum dunking, still plans return soon after All-Star break

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    The dynamic around Andrew Bynum’s return to the 76ers has changed. Before it was something to watch as Philly brass thought about what kind of contract to offer him this summer. But with the injury to Rajon Rondo and the Sixers just 2.5 games back heading into Monday night, a playoff spot seems possible again.…

  16. Optimistic Ainge thinks Rondo could be back by next training camp

    Jan 28, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Part of the theory on why the Celtics may want to start revamping their roster is that Rajon Rondo’s knee injury is not only going to put him out this season but it would make him miss part of the next one, too. Then, when he did come back, he wouldn’t quite be himself for…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs back in the saddle again

    Jan 28, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

    Tony Parker

    You know the consistently good Spurs are going to climb into the top spot a couple times during the season. The top four remain the same but we see some teams fall farther down the list while teams like the Wizards and Hornets climb. 1. Spurs (36-11, last week ranked No. 2). They have won…

  18. Celtics go after Rudy Gay? Three way trade with Lakers? Not likely.

    Jan 28, 2013, 10:51 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    With Rajon Rondo now gone for the rest of this season (and part of next season, and really he likely is not his old self until the season after that) it’s time for Danny Ainge to consider breaking up these Celtics. But the first rumors flying around are not likely at all — that they…

  19. The Extra Pass: How the Celtics can survive without Rajon Rondo

    Jan 28, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at the Celtics without Rajon Rondo.  When the official word came down that Rajon Rondo had torn his ACL, it felt like a death knell for the Celtics. The…

  20. So who gets Rajon Rondo’s All-Star slot?

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:29 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    Don’t we all just love it when David Stern and the league office get to put their fingerprints all over the All-Star Game? But with Rajon Rondo now out with a torn ACL in his right knee, it falls to Stern to make changes to the East roster for the Feb. 17 game in Houston.…

  21. With Rondo out, Garnett/Pierce era in Boston must come to an end

    Jan 28, 2013, 12:41 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    I don’t like the phrase “blow it up” because that implies something rash and destructive long term. Blowing something up leaves a big hole that is hard to climb out of. That’s not how the Boston Celtics operate. They are one of the NBA’s premiere franchises in part because they get the big picture. But…

  22. Celtics players (and LeBron) react to Rondo’s ACL injury

    Jan 27, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    Nobody wants to see a player go down with an ACL injury, particularly a fantastic player like Rajon Rondo. Not true basketball fans, who will be robbed of the chance to watch Rondo control the game for a year (and really longer because it takes a while to return to your old self. Not NBA…

  23. Celtics win over Heat silver lining on dark, cloudy day

    Jan 27, 2013, 7:31 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Boston beat the Miami Heat 100-98 and they did it without Rajon Rondo. It’s a good omen, because the Celtics are going to have to hang on to a playoff spot in the East with more gritty games like this one because Rajon Rondo is out for the season with a torn ACL. Boston did…

  24. The play where Rajon Rondo may have suffered his season-ending ACL injury (VIDEO)

    Jan 27, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    We’re not absolutely certain that this is the play where Rajon Rondo tore his ACL, but at the moment it seems to be the leading candidate. The fine folks over at Celtics Hub did the research, and found this play from Boston’s double-overtime loss in Atlanta, where Rondo appears to come down awkwardly after taking…

  25. Celtics confirm Rajon Rondo has torn ACL, out for the season

    Jan 27, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    An MRI on Sunday confirmed the Celtics’ fears. Rajon Rondo has a torn right ACL and is officially done for the rest of the season, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England. Rondo was a late scratch for Sunday’s nationally televised home game against the Miami Heat. While the return of Ray Allen was…
