So does Rajon Rondo step his game up in pressure-packed Playoff basketball?

Well based on the evidence collated, he is definitely capable of it. But examples of him taking an upward tilt in play are equal to examples of him playing at the same level or worse.

So the question as to whether he can make a real difference for the Lakers in Orlando is yet to be answered. Based on his current season averages of 7.1 PPG, 5 APG and, 3 RPG the expectations won’t be too high. But Rondo is a player who likes to prove the doubters wrong, something Laker fans will hope he can do once again.
