Knowing his importance on his team and that his team needs to win because time is not on their side, Rajon Rondo chose to still play in game 5 of their best of 7 Eastern Conference semis series against the Miami Heat despite his left elbow injury. The Heat leads the series 3-1 and they're one win away from the Finals. Rondo agreed to still play in the all important game 5. Carlos Arroyo said:
"Rajon is feeling bad about his left elbow. It has a plaster but still he participated in our shoot around. He's saying that he's ready for game 5."
Rajon Rondo is a tough customer. That's why he has captured the admiration of his teamates and other sports fans including me. It will be an interesting game 5 come Wednesday.
