SAC F Thomas Robinson had a very up and down game yesterday. He finished with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals. He'll be in action next as the SAC Kings take on the LA Lakers. Yesterday I noticed he seemed uncomfortable with the ball from time to time and tried to do way too much early on. IMO, If he takes his time out there and plays his game (not shooting contested 3's and trying to create off the dribble) he could have a very good outing this evening. Thoughts?
His ascension to the role is perhaps the biggest story line in Boston. Doc Rivers has said it. Danny Ainge has said it. So have Garnett and Pierce. Everyone in Green is making sure the world knows that Rajon Rondo is the leader of this team.
"Just some of the things I wanted to do – or play my game, which is more aggressive and more physical -- I couldn't do it because I was limited strength-wise," Horford said. "And that was something I've been trying to deal with all summer is to try and get my strength back. I'm not 100 percent as far as my strength but I'm feeling pretty good right now."
