Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo Put on a Show

Rose

I know most of you were out at Keeneland or Thunder and decided to take advantage this beautiful day. But some of us didnt and we may have won out because we saw an amazing basketball game in the first round of the NBA Playoffs Simply put, two guys of interest to UK, Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose, put on a show like no other in an overtime thriller that may end up being the game of the First Round. Rose finished with 36 points and in the process, tied the record held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for most points ever in a debut playoff game. And oh yeah, Rajon Rondo wasnt bad either, serving up 25 points and leading the Celtics on offense and defense.

With Rose, Rondo, Big Baby, Noah, Tyrus Thomas (who made a key error down the stretch) and others, this series has a familiar feel to Cats fans….and if I were in the UK recruiting rooms, I might send the copy of the game to John Wall to show what a year with Cal can do. Great stuff
