Or maybe it's just because he wants to win, either way he wants to crush the playoff dreams of the Hawks.
Rondo on playing spoiler: "Hopefully we can mess up Atlanta’s record a little bit more tomorrow & knock those guys out of the playoffs."

The Celtics play the Hawks tomorrow at 7:30 PM EST, but of course any Celtics fan at this point is probably hoping for a loss there. The Cs have an outside chance at catching the Orlando Magic for the #3 spot, and a win over the Hawks could pretty much erase any chance of that happening.
Also, knocking Atlanta out of the playoffs would put the Knicks in there. Who wants to see that happen? Silly Rondo.
