Doc Rivers: Point Guards are Burning Rajon Rondo

The commonality in those four guards is their strength and size advantage over Rondo. He simply can’t check those players one-on-one, and Rivers said the help hasn’t been there.

“I’m concerned with any one position that gets that many points in a game,’’ Rivers said yesterday. “And the assists as well. I can live with one or the other, but I can’t live with both. We have to do a better job when there’s bigger guys, just like when we play teams that have slower guards and Rondo takes advantage of that with his speed.

“It’s up to the team to help that guy out. And I don’t think we did a good enough job.’’
