Heinsohn: 'Rondo's got to be Rondo'

Rajon Rondo had a tough two games in Texas, but he showed up to play in Chicago against the Bulls.

Rondo scored a game-high 26 points and added eight assists. Perhaps more importantly, he only turned the ball over three times.

The Celtics as a team didn't play great, but Gary Tanguay, Donny Marshall, and Tommy Heinsohn had praise for Rondo. The 26 points are high for him, but the eight assists are low. Is that what they need out of him?

"He's got to be Rondo," Heinsohn said. "He's a playmaking guard who can score. But his best asset is getting other people involved. Right now, other people don't know where they're going, and to me it looks like they don't feel free to shoot the ball and make their own play when they get it."

Report: Celtics secure meeting with Dwight Howard

In February, the Boston Celtics were involved in trade deadline talks with the Houston Rockets involving center Dwight Howard.

It appears the team still has interest in the free-agent big man. 

According to ESPN, the Celtics have secured a meeting with Howard after July 1.

Howard, 30, became a free agent after declining a player option that would have paid him more the $23 million in 2016-17
