Update: Rondo rolled his right ankle after stepping on Perk’s foot in the 3rd quarter. He went back into the locker room to get re-taped. Let’s hope he’s OK.
Rajon Rondo (17 pts, 6 assists) is absolutely killing Derrick Rose (2 pts, 4 assists) and the Bulls. Thanks to Rondo and some hot 3-point shooting, the Celtics lead Chicago by 1 at the half.
As usual, the refs are atrocious. I witnessed two of the worst calls in the history of civilization in the first half – the Rondo block after Derrick Rose buried his shoulder into the middle of his chest and Hnrich’s “block” on Eddie House which was 90% arm and 10% ball.
