Rajon Rondo vs Kyrie Irving tonight.

Rondo in my opinion is the best defensive pg in the game vs Kyrie Irving one of the best scoring pg's in the game. I believe Rondo is going to take the challenge and keep him from scoring more than 20 points tonight.

disagree with rondo being the best defensive pg

gambles way to much and as a result can let his man sink open shots , i always felt he was overrated defensively.

I watch plenty of Celtics

I watch plenty of Celtics games, Rondo may gamble and sometimes lose, but he is easily a premier defensive player and can stop his man in his tracks so I disagree with your statement... ^^^

In the first quarter Kryie

In the first quarter Kryie was having every kind of trouble dealing with Rondo pressure. He was passing the ball every single time Rondo decided to go in second gear mode on him.

Kryie isn't having his

Kryie isn't having his usually game so far with only 4 points, Rondo has been on him the whole game also.

avery bradley used to be a pg

avery bradley used to be a pg and may play some back up pg this year so avery bradley is better than rondo. the only issue i have with rondo is that he doesnt try sometimes and slacks off kinda like westbrook on the defensive end

It's Chris Paul his instincts

It's Chris Paul his instincts are off the chart, and when you factor in that he doesn't have the height, quickness, or monster length that rondo has, you'll understand just how good on D he is. Don't listen to these bias Boston fans(bostonkings).

Chris Paul?

Really. Good instincts, gambles a lot though. Rondo is a smarter defender, and his size, length, and strength combined with those smarts make him the best defender in the league. Paul is too small in the long run. Bigger guards like Holiday, Westbrook, Rondo and Rose can guard bigger players, be a defensive post presence, and can defend the rim in transition. Paul doesn't do those things very well due to his stature. Derrick Rose murders chris paul. Rondo does a much better job of containing him. Chris Paul-great defensive player but I would rank a number of guys over him because of his size.

Rondo isn't one of the bigger

Rondo isn't one of the bigger pg's. He is up there with speed with anyone though. Athletically is very good, I would rank him being an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 given his height.The thing that sets him apart from everyone is his arm length and hand size. However that is likely the reason why he has always been a poor shooter.

Boston also has some of the best defense as team

that helps, a guy like KG or a Chandler in the middle talking makes guys that are serviceable on the defensive end look good. I'm only at the end of the first but Kyrie's passiveness had a lot to do with Waiter's having a good first quarter. I do agree with kingofbums, in general that Rondo is a elite defender, but he does take plays off ala Westbrook.

I normally would agree, but

I normally would agree, but this year Boston defense is mediocre. KG usually only plays under 30 minutes now because of his age.

Kyrie proved me wrong. I

Kyrie proved me wrong. I think he ended up with 21 points. He did get a very very fast 6 points, when Rondo got on the bench.

Didn't catch the game but saw the box score, Kyrie finished with 22. Sadly again we didn't win.

Kyrie stuggled when Rondo was in him

Rondo usually keeps guys below their average. Yes he gambles sometime but he is the best PG on D man be serious.
