Doc gets too much respect in my opinion. Hes a good coach but hes not one of the best in my opinion. He was using Rondo wrong the past few years. The Celtics have had teams capable of scoring near 100 points a game, we saw them average probably about 80 points a game last year vs the 76ers in the 2nd round with Rondo. That told me alot, with or without Rondo they're offensively challenged.
Im not sure how much better Boston would be doing if they had Rondo. More then anything they need his offense, his layups that he gets. But i actually think Prigioni and Kidd would do a solid job limiting him. Anyone with a high IQ seems to be able to limit Rondo. And lets not also forgot their record was better after Rondo went down with the injury.
As for Game 3, i cant wait. I gotta good feeling that we'll win in 5 games, maybe even sweep. The Celtics are a 1st half team, its been this way for a while. We found a solution for Jeff green; Shumpert. Pierce is still a good SF but hes not capable of carrying a team.
