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."

Celtics' team plane receives bomb threat

BOSTON -- There was a bomb threat to the Boston Celtics’ team plane to Oklahoma City on Saturday afternoon, but no one was injured.

The incident will be investigated by NBA security which will work in conjunction with the FBI on this matter which was one of several hoaxes called into airports across the country on Saturday.

News of the bomb threat was first known when Celtics forward Jae Crowder posted an Instagram photo showing players departing the plane with the caption, “BOMB THREAT ON US”.

Celtics officials declined to comment on the matter and instead referred all bomb threat-related questions to the league office.

Messages to the league office were not immediately returned.
