LOS ANGELES – The Lakers are enjoying one of their best stretches of outside shooting this season and Rajon Rondo wanted in on the action.
On a game where the Lakers coach shortened his rotation to nine guys, the veteran point guard went off – allowing L.A. to reach the 40-win mark before the All-Star break with one game to spare.
Rondo was phenomenal in his 27 minutes on the STAPLES Center hardwood.
The 14-year veteran took half a quarter to get going, but starting with the second he just wouldn’t be denied.
A pair of quick threes bookended a deuce assisted by LeBron James.
