Tommy Heinsohn was critical of Rajon Rondo following Wednesday night's loss in Atlanta, as the Hawks finished the game on a 25-8 run to erase a 10-point lead by the Celtics entering the 4th quarter. Heinsohn felt like the Celtics Captain did not push the ball or maintain the pace of the successful 3rd quarter the Green featured.

"This team has to go and find opportunities without plays. They've got to be aggressive without plays because they don't execute that well yet." 

Heinsohn continued, "One of the things you do, and it's tough to do with a guy like Rondo, is you pull him out and put someone else in. I don't care [that he's the captain]. That's what you have to do. You've got to pull him aside and talk to him. It's a bad habit that he has from playing with different types of players. He has to play the style that brings out the best in these current teammates."
