ESPNBoston.com's Chris Forsberg says that if Rajon Rondo is suspended after his actions in Game 1 against the Hawks, it puts Boston in an extremely tough spot.
"It's hard to imagine if they were to lose Game 2 they could win four of the next five," he said.
He said the Celtics believe that they can win no matter who's on the court, "but let's face it, Rondo was the best player on the court yesterday," said Forsberg. "He was really the only reason they had a chance to win that game in the fourth quarter, rallying from a 19-point deficit. You know, to take him off the floor just weakens the team so much."
