DALLAS – The two point guards the Dallas Mavericks acquired in blockbuster trades since the end of last season sat next to each other on the bench during crunch time Friday night. It’s certainly no surprise to see Raymond Felton, the tax in the Tyson Chandler trade, riding pine with the game on the line.

Rondo's value reflected in crunch-time impact

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Six points, three rebounds and one assist isn’t the kind of stat line expected from a four-time All-Star point guard. “I wasn’t playing up to my standards that I would like the whole game,” Rajon Rondo said after putting up those unremarkable numbers in Monday’s road win over the Memphis Grizzlies.
