The Celtics have lost a key player with Rajon Rondo going down with a torn ACL. The Celtics had enough trouble trying to win this season with out this news coming their way. Perhaps the 4 leaf clover isn’t as lucky as once thought.
The team made the announcement during Sunday’s game against the Miami Heat. The Celtics had lost six in a row heading into the nationally televised game despite back-to-back triple-doubles by the point guard who had been elected to start for the East in the Feb. 17 All-Star game in Houston.
Rondo injured his knee in Friday night’s double-overtime loss in Atlanta, a game in which the Celtics blew a 27-point lead. He reported to the TD Garden on Sunday for a pregame shootaround but was taken to a hospital after complaining of knee pain.
