Mavericks' Rajon Rondo: 'Everyone is pretty much on the same page'


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo was able to practice Friday after serving his one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team Wednesday. Rondo received the suspension after he and coach Rick Carlisle were seen arguing on the sideline during Tuesday's game.

"We just had a little discussion on the court and it led to a suspension," Rondo said after Friday's practice, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "I think he had some frustrations with me and vice versa." 

Rondo thinks communication led to the issue Monday.

"Communication is definitely key in this situation, and we've had a couple of talks since then and we're going to move forward."

Rondo is averaging 8.6 points and 8.3 assists in 47 games this season.

"I've talked to pretty much everybody in the organization, and everyone is pretty much on the same page," Rondo said according to the team's website.


Celtics' Ainge on Rondo's heated exchange: 'None of it surprises me'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Celtics president Danny Ainge said in an interview on 98.5 FM The Sports Hub in Boston on Thursday that he wasn't surprised by Rajon Rondo's heated exchange with Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle during Tuesday's win over the Raptors, per CelticsHub.com.

"I know that Rondo is an emotional guy and feisty," Ainge said. "None of it really surprises me."

Rondo won a championship in 2008 with the Celtics and was shipped from Boston to Dallas in December to play out the final year of his contract. He served a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team after reportedly jawing twice with Carlisle -- in-game and again in the locker room after the game -- on Tuesday.

Carlisle stressed the importance of having Rondo back in the lineup for Dallas despite his suspension on Thursday, per ESPN. He will practice Friday and return to the floor on Saturday against the Nets. The embattled point guard has averaged 9.0 points, 6.2 assists and 4.5 rebounds in 25 games since being traded to the Mavericks.

"I want to stress and reiterate how important Rajon Rondo is to the Dallas Mavericks," Carlisle said. "For us to get where we want to get and we strive to get this season, his abilities have to be utilized by us the best possible way. That's in large part my responsibility, and I do not dodge that."

Rondo also chipped in four assists and two rebounds before being taken out of the game for good. The Mavericks will move ahead to face the Hawks Wednesday in Atlanta. Asked if Rondo would be the team's point guard for the Hawks game, Carlisle said, "That's what we brought him here for."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"There’s things with everybody’s shot you can tweak a little bit and help get better. The things in season that I feel like we can tweak we’ll tweak, but this is not the time of year for a major overhaul. It’s a time for him to figure out where his shots are coming from, what level of aggression we’d like him to have and what works within the context of our offense."
