Whether he was in Cleveland or in Miami, LeBron James knows what it’s like to have to go against Rajon Rondo in the postseason. He’s especially happy that he can enjoy that play of Rondo as a teammate rather than having to prepare for him as a foe.
Rondo’s play over the last two games, both Lakers wins, has been a revelation for Lakers fans who have long doubted the power of Rondo to elevate his game when it matters most. He has led the Lakers in assists in both games, allowing LeBron James to play more like a playmaking wing than as the team’s lone creator. Rondo has also outplayed Houston’s All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook. LeBron is just happy to be benefitting from Rondo in his playoff career, for a change, according to SB Nation’s Christian Rivas.
