Rondo's solo project
Rondo certainly seems to have played with a little extra motivation in those most recent games. Sure, each occurrence has been near the end of the season (his own minutes limited in a 2009 game against Washington), but Rondo has upped his scoring output whenever he's logged 30+ minutes. Clearly, the Celtics like having a fully healthy roster, but Rondo's exploits are an encouraging sign of his potential even if the roster is overhauled for future seasons.
