Rajon Rondo turned back the clock on Tuesday as he finished with 21 points (8-of-11 FG, 2-of-2 FT), 9 assists, two rebounds and three triples in 30 minutes in a Game 3 win over the Rockets on Tuesday.
If you didn't believe that Playoff Rondo was a real thing, well, here's your proof. He was 3-of-5 from beyond the arc tonight including a contested step back jumper. At one point he was carrying the Lakers offense until Anthony Davis and LeBron James got back into rhythm. This might be the best game that he'll have in the entire playoffs but the Lakers surely needed it tonight. He'll look to follow up his incredible performance on Thursday when the Lakers attempt to take a 3-1 series lead over the Rockets.
