Mavs’ Carlisle on Losses: ‘This isn’t a Rondo thing’
The Mavs are 11-8 since (Rajon) Rondo’s arrival. Not bad, but a lot worse than their 19-8 record before his arrival. Their defensive rating has improved 2.3 points per 100 possessions with Rondo, but their offensive rating has dropped drastically, from a league-best 113.6 pre-Rondo to 106.3 since the deal.
Two losses later, it’s tough not to wonder whether Rondo is a long-term fit for the Mavs, especially if it takes a near-max contract to keep him.
“This isn’t a Rondo thing,” (Mavs coach Rick) Carlisle said, trying to cut off that line of thinking. “This is a team thing. Right now, we’ve got to circle the wagons.”
