The NBA Finals kicked off today. The Heat started off with a stunning performance. They scored 25 points in the first 14 rounds. They led 23 to 10 at one point, but in the next 11 rounds, they only scored 3 points.
The Lakers' overtake has a lot to do with Rondo's performance. Rondo had 5 minutes and 36 seconds left in the first quarter. He scored 7 points in 9 minutes. The Lakers beat the Heat by 15 points during his presence.
Worthy of being a playoff god. Mark Jackson revealed in the commentary that Lakers coach Vogel did not like the nickname of Rondo in the playoffs because he thought it was disrespectful to Rondo. He said that Rondo has been a key player for the Lakers throughout the year.
