Rondo’s frustration peaked when Williams treated him like Adrian Peterson would a cornerback, lowering the shoulder and plowing Rondo on his way to the hoop. But Paul Pierce and Garnett weren’t going to see Rondo’s temper get the best of him.
I wonder what they told Rajon. Maybe it was, “Damn, boy, he just truck-sticked the hell out of you.”
Whatever it was, they weren’t going to let Rondo get a technical. Chalk one up for the Big Three’s veteran leadership.
Now, if only they could exert the same fatherly role over Rasheed and Perk.
