Boston Celtics Go as Rondo, Garnett Go
And now, the dynamic makes these Celtics still so dangerous to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. Together, they played the biggest part in Boston’s 101-91 Game 3 victory on Friday night at the Garden. (Kevin) Garnett had 24 points, 11 rebounds and had his way around the basket. (Rajon) Rondo had 21 points, 10 assists and six rebounds, and made every fourth-quarter play the Celtics needed to hold off the Heat.
Together, Garnett and Rondo have been Boston’s most consistent two stars in these playoffs.
Together, they’ve found a commonality of cause.
Together, they drive these Celtics now.
“There were times when they really clashed,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers told Yahoo! Sports on Friday night. “But the difference now? They clash and recover. They have an amazing friendship now. But it took time. It took time, and it took trust.”
