Rondo totaled seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven assists, two rebounds and three steals across 21 minutes in New Orleans' 113-104 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series. Rondo was limited by a sore groin in the second half, leading to his lowest minutes total of the postseason. The veteran guard may have finished up the series in lackluster fashion due to the limited playing time, but he undoubtedly made his mark during the playoffs. Rondo finished the postseason with averages of 10.3 points, 12.2 assists, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 33.6 minutes over nine games, posting two double-doubles while dishing out double-digit dimes on six occasions overall. He'll head into free agency having generated his best shooting percentage (46.8) since the 2012-13 campaign, with a return to New Orleans also potentially in the cards.
Rondo tallied four points (2-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 21 assists, 10 rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes during Friday's 119-100 victory over Golden State. Rondo served up a plethora of dimes Friday, setting a franchise playoff high with 21 assists. He went missing in the scoring department but more than made up for it with not only 21 assists but 10 rebounds. He has reinvented himself this across the back end of this season and has formed a nice partnership with Anthony Davis. The good times will need to continue of the Pelicans hope to win Game Four on Sunday and tie the series up at 2-2.
Rondo collected 22 points (8-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 assists, seven rebounds and five steals across 38 minutes during New Orleans' 121-116 loss to the Warriors in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series. He also committed a game-high seven turnovers, but the remainder of Rondo's line was undeniably stellar as he joined Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday in the 20-point club on the Pelicans for the night. The 12-year veteran's scoring and steal totals were his best of six postseason games thus far, and he's now dished out double-digit assists in five of those contests as well. He'll look to put together another similarly impressive effort when New Orleans goes for their first win of the series in Friday's Game 3.
Rondo tallied nine points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 assists, eight rebounds, one steal and one block across 33 minutes during New Orleans' 123-101 loss to the Warriors in Game 1 of their Western Conference second-round playoff series. Rondo filled out the stat sheet in trademark fashion, but his contributions were nowhere near enough for the Pelicans to hang with the Warriors in the second half. The 12-year veteran did manage to dish out double-digit assists for the third straight postseason game, while also posting his best rebound total since Game 2 of the first round against the Trail Blazers. Rondo will look to up his contributions on the offensive end when New Orleans tries to bounce back in Tuesday's Game 2.
Rondo scored 16 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block in 28 minutes during Thursday's 119-102 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 3. The veteran point guard has now recorded back-to-back double-doubles and is averaging 12.7 points, 12.3 assists, 7.7 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.0 three-pointers in the series. Rondo's playoff experience appears to be coming in handy for the Pelicans, so expect him to remain productive Saturday as they look for a sweep in Game 4.
