Rajon Rondo Has Made a Habit of Beating the Buzzer
In his fifth year in the NBA out of Kentucky, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has established himself as one of the premier point guards in the league. He leads the NBA in assists per game with 13.4 — nearly three assists more than the guy in second, Steve Nash. He’s second only to Chris Paul in steals per game, and is one of only two players, the other being LeBron James, with multiple triple-doubles. Despite all that, this week for Rondo has been about buzzer-beaters. Check out Rondo’s second buzzer-beater of the week (the first came on Monday against the Rockets):
These two shots are far from the first of Rondo’s career. He’s hit quite a few of them, though all but one have come mid-game, as opposed to at the end. This buzzer-beater from last season is the only one to come at the end of regulation. He’s a long way from matching Big Shot Rob, but he’s working on it.
