Sounds of the game… Celtics 119, Warriors 111

Maybe Stephen Jackson was onto something. He told our own Jessica Camerato that the Celtics deserve the respect he refused to give them last year [1]. And after the game he said one reason he has changed his mind is the play of Rajon Rondo. The point guard’s teammates are also on board. Rondo led a dramatic 32-16 surge in the third quarter that left Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett calling for Rondo to get some All-Star love. The Rondo-for-All-Star push continues Friday night at the Garden as the 14-2 Celtics welcome the 7-8 Philadelphia 76ers.

Paul Pierce said he wouldn’t be surprised to see Rondo wind up on the Eastern Conference All-Star squad [2].

Rajon Rondo appreciated the thoughts from his captain [3].

Garnett said Rondo has a heart the size of Africa [4].

Rondo on his big third quarter [5].

Doc Rivers said the team got away with an offense-first mentality on Wednesday [6].

Rivers said he liked the team’s start [7].
