Marksmen

Via the Patriot Ledger:

Ray Allen, who has made 95.4 percent of his free throws, is on the way to breaking the mark set by Bill Sharman (93.2 percent in the 1958-59 season).

Another team shooting record – 3-point accuracy – is being threatened by Eddie House, and Rajon Rondo is bidding to become the Celtics’ first starting point guard ever to shoot better than 50 percent from the field.

Allen, House and Rondo have been on target throughout the season, helping the Celtics average 100.8 points through 75 games.

Not bad for a team known for its defense. Is Rondo the best dunking point guard in the league?

Leon Powe talked with NECN’s Chris Collins (video link) about his knee injury:

Powe, has missed two weeks with a sprained right knee and says he won’t return for a couple more weeks. He says he is just taking it day by day, and trying to “get the soreness out.”

Although he won’t see much game time before the playoffs, he isn’t worried about getting rusty. “Once you get out there, everything else is out the door.”

I’m glad to hear from Leon. He’s been MIA since injuring the knee and once the prognosis went from a few days to several weeks – we all got worried.

And in his Examiner blog, John re-evaluates the team as the regular season winds down:

Today, the Celtics are still a banged up M*A*S*H unit that’s looking for contributions from unusual places to get them through. But fear not, the full-strength Celtics are on their way.  And it doesn’t matter if the Celtics drop to the third seed.  They’re not dependent on home court advantage to advance.  The people who say they need home court are using examples from almost a full year ago.  It doesn’t apply now.

After the jump, a stretching exercise to get you ready for the playoffs.

  1. I think Baron Davis is still better than Rondo & theres also the rookie from the Bulls who’s name I’m drawing a blank.

  2. baron davis, derrick rose, nate robinson all better dunkers than rondo

  3. i think javarris crittenton is a little better too, but thats just mainly going off reputation

    and russell westbrook is better, even though he is not exactly a “true point”

    i’d probly give the nod to jerryd bayliss too, maybe even monte ellis

    so no rondo is no the best dunking point in the game

  4. […] related to injuries Floor general Steph Yardbarker Rajon Rondo’s blog Red’s Army Marksmen Examiner Re-evaluating the Boston Celtics NY Post These Cavs aren’t home-icidal My SA Time […]

  5. How could I forget about Nate Robinson! I think Its Robison, Rose, Rondo.

    Now that I think about it I don’t think Davis can still get up like he used to. Everyone else is not better than Rondo.

  6. Russell Westbrook

  7. Yeah I’d say Rondo is the best dunking PG. And Eddie could have run away with the record already if he didn’t start the season cold because he was running the point yeah I’m looking at you Doc
