Rajon Rondo: Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett return ‘just another game’

In between providing one-word answers about his current state of play, Celtics captain Rajon Rondo likewise shed little light on his expectations for Sunday’s Boston homecoming for Nets Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

“It’€™s just another game,” Rondo said after an 18-point loss to the Kevin Durant-less Thunder. “We need to win.”

Like his team’s record, which dropped to 15-30 after a 16th loss in 19 games, the point guard’s return from ACL surgery has been a work in little progress. As one member of the Celtics organization said afterwards, Rondo was really only Rondo for one play. His minutes limit prevents him from getting into a rhythm, and as he said, “€œPlays I usually make, I’€™m not making right now, but I still feel positive and I’€™m OK with my progression right now.”

Here’s a sample of what was a typically tenuous Rondo interview after a 101-83 loss to Oklahoma City.

Do you feel like you’re more of yourself out there every game? “€œI’€™m getting there.”

Is it disappointing the way you guys came out tonight? “€œYeah.”

What happened? “€œWe didn’€™t get stops.”

How do you judge your progress? “I just take it one game at a time.”

Is there something you’re looking for? “€œYeah, but I don’€™t want to say.”
