Rondo scales New York.
Rajon Rondo is a fan of lows. Sure, he’s worn the occasional Nike Zoom Hyperfuse but this season Rondo’s sneaker diet has been a court mix of Hyperfuse Lows and Max Air BB 360 Lows. After kicking off the Celtics’ postseason in the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011, RR broke out a pair of pearlized white Nike Zoom Kobe VI for game 2, putting in a career playoff high 30 points to go with 4 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals in a 96-93 C’s win. It was the first time Rondo’s worn the scaly-uppered Kobe VI since lacing up the Rice edition in early February. They matched his body pads well. Melo donned the Jordan Melo M7 Advance again and dropped 42 points, 17 rebounds and 6 assists but just didn’t get enough help from his teammates.
In Orlando, Dwight Howard wore his standard adidas Superbeast “Home” edition, picked up his Defensive Player of the Year award, and led the Magic with 33 points and 19 rebounds to grab a series-tying 88-82 win over the Hawks. Gilbert Arenas chose the Nike Air Trainer SC for the game, scoring 2 points in 6 minutes off the bench. Josh Smith and Hedo Turkoglu again sported the adidas adiZero Crazy Light.
In Dallas, the Mavs took a 2-0 series lead on Nike Hyperdunk 2010-wearing Dirk Nowitzki’s 33 points. Shawn Marion stayed with his Nike Air Max Fly By PE, while DeShawn Stevenson and Corey Brewer promo’d the Crazy Light once more.
