Atlanta Hawks? You think Celtics’ point guard Rajon Rondo is worried about his team’s current playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks?? If so, think again.
Check out what Boston’s skilled floor general had to say in regards to the Hawks ( who his team beat out this past Tuesday to even their current series toone a piece).
Doc Rivers had told reporters that Rondo thanked his teammates for defeating the Hawks without him and evening the series at 1-1 on Tuesday. But the petulant point guard wasn’t carrying any contrition when he stepped onto the practice court and into the firing squad of pens and microphones and cameras yesterday.
“The end result is all that matters,” Rondo said. “If there had been a different result, it would have been very difficult. But since we won, it felt like we won the series already.”
Rondo was asked about the appreciation he showed to his teammates — he ran down the tunnel at Philips Arena and hugged Kevin Garnett — and whether he felt he let his teammates down by missing the game.
“I didn’t feel like I needed to say thank you for getting this win,” Rondo replied. “We’re trying to get as many wins as possible. You know, they’ve won without me before, so it’s not the first game I’ve missed. I’ve missed (for) injuries and suspensions. It’s just a big win because this is the playoffs. You know, every win counts.”-Source
