After playing through muscle spasm in Monday night’s overtime loss to the Orlando Magic, Rajon Rondo assured everybody he’d be ready to play his best tonight.
According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston, Rondo told reporters after practice:
“I’m feeling better, I’m fine,” Rondo said at the Celtics’ shootaround Wednesday morning at Amway Arena. “Nothing to worry about, I’ll be playing.”
Good news for Celtics town. The Boston Celtics will need Rajon Rondo at 100% if they want to slow down the pick-and-roll offense the Magic used so effectively in Game 4. Rondo left for the locker room with 1:16 left in the first half to treat his muscle spasms, and did not play well in the second half, finishing the game with just 9 points and 8 assists.
