Super Bowl effort.
Rajon Rondo is accustomed to setting up other players to score, to racking up assists rather than points. Yesterday, he switched up game plans and shoes, scoring 26 points – 11 in the third quarter – and dishing 7 assists to help the Celtics overcome the Orlando Magic, 91-80. Rondo, who’s been wearing White/Green Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Lows for home games, decided on a Black/Green colorway for this game. For the Magic, Dwight Howard put up 28 and 13 in his recently debuted adidas Superbeast “Away”. Gilbert Arenas brought his “Foamposite” Jordan 6 Rings with him to Boston, his second game in a row in the shoe.
In other action, Dwyane Wade wore the White/Red Air Jordan 2011 against Blake Griffin and the Clippers, Jrue Holiday donned the red adidas adiZero Rose in New York, and Mike Dunleavy, Dahntay Jones and A.J. Price made a case to be Team Kobe by sporting the Nike Zoom Kobe VI “Away”.
