    The better question would be why he tones it down in the regular season.

    And the answer is probably because he is smart and realizes the regular season don't mean sh*t...so he might as well just keep himself healthy and preserve himself for the playoffs.

    He's been this good all season, on fewer minutes. And several other seasons. But since he doesn't score, no one pays attention til the playoffs.

    Things about Rondo, he would be pretty crap on a bad team, he wouldn't be able to go on rubbish team and lead them. He's like a multiplier effect on his team. On bad teams, x times 0 is 0, but on a good team especially with a player like AD that can protect the rim (ala KG) and score buckets, he's perfect for it, along with a guard that doesn't really like to play point in Jrue. (who's a stud by the way, always liked his two way game)

    This team became a team when Cousins went down. Without that they would have been swept in the first round

    Game slows down.

    Teams stupidly back off 5+ feet and give him a clear view of the court.

    Because the playoffs are mostly a halfcourt battle and rondo is great at slowing it down and controlling the game. He has a knack for setting guys up in THEIR comfort zones, throwing laterals to mirotic for deep 3s when hes open, hitting Anthony Davis when he has a sliver of an opening...hes a great orchestrator and competitor.

    I remember what happened to him in the 2012 ECF. NEVER FORGET that REF JOB.

    Always respected Rondo's game. Got good tutelage from Pierce and KG.
