Rondo is sometimes overlooked among the Celtics' other All-Stars, Rondo is the reason the Celtics are two wins away from knocking off the East's No. 1 seed.
"I think it starts with Rondo. He's kind of the engine that really gets them going," James said. "He does everything for them. His performance was unbelievable.
"Rondo was definitely the difference maker."
Rondo had a playoff career high in rebounds and matched his best scoring night in his fourth postseason triple-double. He played 47 minutes with some of his bigger-name teammates in foul trouble, and fans serenaded him with the chants as he knocked down a pair of free throws with 17 seconds left.
Rondo took this team on his back with others in foul trouble and took advantage of Cleveland's inability to stop his penetration (ha i said penetration) and dish style. Look for more of this the rest of the series for the Celtics to win. Hopefully the refs stop buying the Cavs bullshit flops by Lebron and Varejao. Also, LeBron isn't hurt...stop using it as an excuse when you lose or play like trash.
