Second honeymoon for Crowder

BOSTON -- At the start of the February, it felt like the honeymoon was over. Jae Crowder, acquired in mid-December as part of the deal that sent Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks, had raised eyebrows early in his Boston tenure and, when Jeff Green was dealt away to Memphis in early January, Crowder elevated to starting small forward. But his production waned and, in a 10-game span beginning on Jan. 14, Crowder was a team-worse minus-71 in plus/minus and his advanced numbers were an absolute eyesore (team-worst minus-16.

Rondo, Carlisle must make it work for now

ATLANTA -- Rajon Rondo is a renowned pain in the butt to coach. Plenty of players have cussed Rick Carlisle, either to his face or behind his back.
