Rajon Rondo takes shot at Heat

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo -- who finished Game 4 with 15 points, 15 assists and five rebounds -- took a shot at the Miami Heat at halftime of Sunday's game on his way to the locker room.

Asked by ESPN's Doris Burke what holes he was exploiting in the Heat defense, Rondo answered: "Them complaining and crying to the referees in transition."

Miami was called for 13 personal fouls in the first half (and 28 for the game), while Rondo picked up a technical after an altercation with Heat forward Shane Battier.

Following the Celtics' 93-91 overtime victory, Rondo again spoke with Burke and was asked if he expected any repercussions from his halftime comments.

"What I said was true," Rondo said. "I don't take back what I said. That's what it is."

The Celtics and Heat are tied 2-2 in their best-of-seven series with Game 5 set for Tuesday night in Miami.
