Coach Doc Rivers credited Rondo for relentlessly pushing the ball.
"I thought his speed was the factor of the game," Rivers said. "It set the tables for everyone else to get in. He's done that three or four games in a row and we're winning by big margins."
Rondo was reluctant to run at first, so Rivers had to press the message home.
"I told him that his speed, every night, has to be the factor of the game," Rivers said. "Early in the year, everyone was playing off of him because we were walking the ball up the floor and not doing anything. Now, with his speed, you've got to stay with him."
