rajon rondo Rajon Rondo Injury rondo
Deron Williams had a big game last night with 20 points and nine assists to help seal a season sweep of the Orlando Magic 97-77.? The Nets were coming off two horrible losses to two good Western Conference teams in Memphis and Houston in which the Nets were manhandled.? The Nets needed to right the ship against another below .500 team and set themselves up for the big meeting with the Miami Heat on Wednesday. Williams got them started with a great first quarter and led the way to a blowout win.
Williams may have had a sub-par first half of the season (in his eyes) but he is making a late run at an All-Star selection as a replacement for the injured Rajon Rondo.
First and foremost, let's be clear: we never wish injury upon any professional athlete and we would never take glee in anyone being hurt. That said, the Brooklyn Nets are still a team searching for its identity and riding a three game win streak, will look to make it four against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night.
Unfortunately for the Celtics, they may be without one of their key cogs...
