Rajon Rondo: ‘We feel we can beat Miami’
“We didn’t want it to end,’’ (Rajon) Rondo said. “I didn’t plan on going home tomorrow or any exit meetings right now.
“Last year is in the past. This year, we are a totally different team. We feel we can beat Miami. Obviously, we got to this point. There’s no doubt in my mind that we can, so we’ve got to go down there and take care of business.’’
“I don’t know how tough it’s going to be,’’ (Boston coach Doc) Rivers said of the opener against Miami. “But we’ll be ready. We’ve got the long flight. As a staff, the good thing about the flight, it’s a three-hour film for us, so we can look at that. I’ve already packed, so I can watch them tonight.
“We’ll be ready. It’s going to be a tough turnaround, but we’ll be ready.’’
