The Celtics rested Rajon Rondo against the Wizards last week on the second night of a back to back, and the strategy is no different today against the Philadelphia 76ers.
#celtics Rajon (rest) is out tonight vs #sixers.

Of course, that ended up working out pretty well for the Celtics, that Wizards game was the only one they've won in the past 1 trillion games.
Rondo sitting out might be good for other reasons too though...
Tonight some Celtics fans may be looking towards the future, and that means draft picks. Thanks to the trade that sent Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Warriors the Celtics now own two picks of the 76ers. Thing is, those are only second round picks unless the 76ers make the playoffs. The better the Sixers do, the better Boston's draft pick.
So, go Sixers, I guess? Michael Saver 1/29/2014 06:40:00 PM Tweet
