Here's three things to take away from last nights game.
1. The defense needs to improve, and fast.
2. Rajon Rondo's assist streak : Impressive but could be distracting.Rajon Rondo has dished out ten or more assists in 26 consecutive games. Its the longest streak in the NBA since 1992, but it may be more of a distraction than anything for the Celtics.
Rondo at times seems like he is trying to get assists, almost forcing the action. It was apparent last night a few times. Rondo was only credited with two turnovers but he was forcing the issue to Pierce and Green. That led to to more turnovers, as they were in an awkward position to score the basketball.
