All you had to do was watch Rajon Rondo‘s reaction when he looks at the stat sheet.

Even with pre-game hijinks featuring Clutch, the Rockets’ irascible mascot, Houston blew out the Celtics big in the first quarter last before cruising to a 109-85 victory. At that point, he knew he had to strap in and just ride this one out, and that couldn't have been easy.
