Rajon Rondo News

Rajon Rondo    G  Pelicans

 

 

Rajon Rondo scored five points with three rebounds, three assists, three turnovers, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday. We saw Coach Rondo out there to help decide who closed. Coach Alvin Gentry said he tried to sub Rondo in late, but Rondo told Gentry to leave the group that was on the floor in the game because they were hot. Rondo has been very productive as the starter, he's making his shots and he's not going to the line, so his fantasy owners have to be pleased so far. Although, he may be close to peaking and Rondo not even going back in on his own accord is interesting.

Rondo recorded 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), 12 rebounds, and 12 assists in 42 minutes during Monday's 130-123 loss to the Rockets. Rondo posted his first triple-double with the Pelicans in this his 14th appearance. While he committed eight turnovers, Rondo finished with season highs in rebounding and made threes while scoring exactly 13 points for the fourth time in 2017-18. He had been taking such good care of the ball prior to Monday, as he was averaging just 1.6 giveaways per game entering the evening. Monday's turnover troubles aside, Rondo has four double-doubles and one triple-double through six appearances this month, and he seems primed to be a major contributor in an uptempo offense if he can stay healthy going forward.

Rajon Rondo triple-doubled with 13 points (5-of-12 FGs), 12 assists, 12 rebounds, three triples and eight turnovers in Monday's 130-123 loss to Houston. That's the 30th triple-double of his career and that makes him the only player in the NBA to have at least one triple-double in each of the last 10 seasons. Rondo has really expanded his 3-point range in recent years and that's going to be huge for New Orleans' floor spacing -- he's hit three or more triples 16 times in his career and all of them have come after 2014. He played 42 minutes after playing 37 on Sunday, so hopefully the Pelicans are done watching his minutes.

Rondo scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with two rebounds, 18 assists, five steals and one block across 37 minutes in Sunday's 131-124 win against Philadelphia. Rondo collected a season-high 18 assists in a season-high 37 minutes on Sunday. Over his last five games, the guard is averaging 11.8 points, 11.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds. Rondo has collected at least 10 assists in four out of his last five games. For the season, he is averaging 8.1 assists through 13 games. The New Orleans guard also contributed significantly on the defensive end with a season-high five steals to top off an overflowing stat sheet against Philadelphia.

Rajon Rondo returned from a day of rest to finish Sunday's home victory with a season-high 18 assists, 13 points, five steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes. Not too shabby. This is just the second time Rondo has exceeded 30 minutes since returning in mid-November, as the Pelicans are wisely being cautious with his workload. He's played in two back-to-back sets, though, so the restrictions aren't too severe. He came into this game hot over the past five games, averaging 9.8 points on 56.8% shooting, 1.4 triples, 5.2 rebounds, 9.2 assists and 0.8 steals. Those numbers are going up after tonight's gem.

Rondo will return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Sixers. Rondo received the night off for rest Friday, as the Pelicans looked to limit his workload a bit after dealing with a sports hernia to start the year. However, as expected, Rondo will just be given a one-game layoff and is set to rejoin the lineup Sunday. Look for Rondo to take on his usual role as the team's starting point guard and he could potentially even see a few more minutes than normal with backup point guard Jameer Nelson (ankle) likely sitting out.

Rondo will be rested for Friday's game against the Kings. Rondo has started 12 straight games since returning from a sports hernia, but he'll get the night off as the Pelicans look to keep the veteran fresh. He's held his own since returning, compiling averages of 7.0 points, 7.3 assists and 3.8 rebounds across 23.9 minutes per game. Ian Clark will draw the start in his place Friday.

Ian Clark will start for Rajon Rondo (rest) against the Kings on Friday. No double revenge game against the Kings here. Rondo has looked pretty good lately and maybe the Pelicans leaning on him more while Anthony Davis was out is part of the reason for the rest. He'll likely be looking at additional days off going forward but he is still worth owning. Clark will be tough to count on in DFS with Jameer Nelson behind him.

DeMarcus Cousins had some high praise for Rajon Rondo during a recent interview. "I've said it many times, once Rondo is on the floor he makes the game easier for a lot of guys. He takes guys' games to the next level," Cousins said. "Since Rondo has been back, I think Jrue [Holiday] and E'Twaun [Moore]'s game has gone to the next level. Darius Miller, his game has gone to a whole other level. It's just making the game easier for everybody." Rondo has put in averages of 11.0 points and 10.5 dimes over the past two games sans Anthony Davis (groin), and he should continue to operate with the rock in his hands more often while AD is on the sidelines.

Rondo finished with 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 11 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 125-115 loss to the Warriors. Rondo was able to put up his third consecutive double-double, while matching his season-high of two three-pointers. He has looked a lot better over the past three games, as he learns to play alongside his new teammates. Unfortunately, Anthony Davis (groin) could miss some time and Rondo will have to wait to build on that relationship. He is not going to put up a lot of points, but he should still be owned in standard leagues for his upside in assists, steals, and rebounds from the guard position.

Jamal Murray to be on the baseline when Cousins turns towards the basket off his post-up. He's guarding Rajon Rondo. Gotta double off him.
