It's weird to say this when Rose dropped 39, but Rondo didn't do a bad job on him. The Bulls run a pick and roll every time and Rose did a good job of mixing up what he did. He took it inside sometimes, shot the J, drew the foul, etc. It's funny because the few times Rondo did gamble ended up being missed fg's for Rose. There were 2 bad defensive plays that stand out: the and 1 where he got caught reaching in unnecessarily on a straight iso and a gamble where he looked to be a foot away from getting the steal and put the pressure on the bigs behind him.
Rose got 14 of the points when Nate was guarding him and in the last minute.
