Dwyane Wade Playing The 'Kobe' Defense On Rajon Rondo

As expected, Dwyane Wade is doing a beautiful job roaming off Rajon Rondo to help everyone else out. It’s forcing the Celtics to pause for a second before deciding what to do next, ruining their offensive rhythm. It’s very reminiscent of the way Kobe Bryant took Rondo out of games in the 2010 NBA Finals.

This is the first big chess piece that has been played in this series. Rondo and the Celtics now need to adjust.
