Rajon Rondo did all he could on Wednesday night.
A career-high 44 points wasn’t enough.
At least, not when the referees aren’t on your side.
The backlash following the Miami Heat’s 115-111 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 2 in Miami has been intense. Fans across the nation agree that two things happened last night. For starters, Rajon Rondo emerged as one of the premier point guards in the league, raising his stock with a 44-point, 10-assist, eight-rebound performance.
And the other?
The referees in this series are blatantly doing all they can to help the Heat reach the Finals.
People aren’t happy.
Congratulations to your Heat, like the new black & white striped uniforms, oh that was the refs? @Follow24Hodge

BTW, the Heat should trade Bosh for one of those refs.

The Heat "Big 3" isn't the players…..it's the refs

The refs won that game. Ridiculous. Missed two calls down the stretch. C'mon son. NBA wants the Heat back in the Finals.

But to a lot of people, who I respect, the refs jacked up the game, LeBron choked, Boston played great, and the Heat somehow won.

Forget what Lebron didn't do in the clutch Rondo needs more respect as a top 3 point guard

@Follow24Hodge Rondo and Parker are definitely tied for first. After these last two nights can't decide who has the edge
