Rajon Rondo scored 13 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, 19 assists and four steals in the Kings’ road loss to the Rockets on Saturday.
Rondo is the master of racking up assists and tricking folks into believing it was a dominant performance, but it really wasn’t. The offense bogged down under relentless dribbling and his defense was a gambling mess. Given the keys without proving anything, the Kings will now have to back track if it doesn’t work out. It’ll be interesting to see if Rondo and the core group that is loyal to Rondo will go for that. In the meantime, he’s sitting on a top 30-60 start to the season (8/9 cat).
