Rajon Rondo Elaborates How He’s Able To Step Up His Game In The Playoffs


In the regular season, one could make a case that two-time champion Rajon Rondo hasn’t been the same player he once was in these past few years. But when it matters most, the veteran point guard never ceases to amaze and always rises to the occasion.

Last season, Rondo proved that ‘Playoff Rondo’ is well and alive, after he made an incredible jump in the playoffs, averaging 8.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game on 45.5% shooting from the field to help the Los Angeles Lakers secure their 17th NBA championship.

Turning into a totally different player in the playoffs however, isn’t something that can magically happen once the playoff starts. Rondo, in an appearance on ‘All The Smoke’ podcast, now elaborated how he’s able to step up his game in the postseason constantly.


“My main thing is, you have a couple of days of rest, a couple of days of preparation being able to lock into one team. I think everybody can elevate their game in a sense.”

“It is all about the dedication and the knowledge of the game on some levels. You got those things that come into play, it is easy. Also, during the playoffs, look at my career. I’ve pretty much gotten more time in the playoffs. And I believe that is when coaches allow me to be a magician with the ball, manipulate the game, put people in spots.”
