In case you missed Rajon Rondo’s halftime interview with ESPN’s Doris Burke last night, here it is.
One thing about the interview, in which Rondo said the Heat were complaining to the officials, Burke didn’t follow up. Most times the sideline reporters have a fixed set of a couple of questions they want to ask, no matter what. They don’t seem to be even listening to the answers.
Burke did follow up after the game about what Rondo said, to which the former UK guard and Celtics star said he was just telling “the truth.” After the interview, you could see Rondo and Burke talking further.
The Celtics won 93-91 in overtime to tie the series, 2-2, by the way. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Miami. So much for my prediction of a Miami sweep.
BTW: I like Doris. I think she does a good job. Not picking on her. All sideline reports follow the same halftime and in-game script.
