The Boston Celtics have not done a whole lot right lately. Losers of nine straight games and 14 of their last 15, the Celtics are already crossing their fingers that the ping-pong balls will drop their way in a few months. Heck, they can’t even flop correctly.
During Wednesday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Rajon Rondo had a pathetic attempt at drawing a charge call late in the fourth quarter. The Celtics were scrambling to get back on defense following a turnover when Rondo stepped in front of Jeff Teague at the top of the key. The only thing I could think of while watching the play was “TIMBERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!.”
Rondo slowly fell backward despite the fact that Teague didn’t touch him. Fortunately, no foul was called. Rondo could be hearing from the league for that one.
