Rajon Rondo Injures Elbow
Rajon Rondo injures his left elbow badly in a tie-up with Dwyane Wade. The Celtics went on to beat the Miami Heat 97-81 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Rajon Rondo showed a lot of heart by coming back and finishing Game 3 against the Miami Heat after dislocating his left elbow. His elbow looked like something out of a horror movie. Dwyane Wade showed poor sportsmanship by pulling Rondo down to the floor. Wade was obviously frustrated and took it out on Rondo. Although Wade wasn't trying to intentionally hurt Rondo, he did.
Rondo's left elbow will be the biggest storyline looking ahead to Game 4 on Monday night. With Boston trailing Miami 2-1 in the series, the Celtics cannot afford to lose a game at home. Suffering a 3-1 series deficit would also spell the end of the series for the Celtics. Rondo will have to find a way to be effective on Monday night. The Miami Heat will have to find a way to slow down a point guard with a bad wing. Advantage: Heat in this department.
