Rajon Rondo floors Lance Stephenson with elbow, says he didn’t know he was that strong (video)
Rajon Rondo floored Lance Stephenson with a pretty deliberate-looking elbow, and Stephenson apparently responded – unfortunately, off the CSN feed – with “a subtle punch to the face.”
Stephenson’s Hornets won the game, but Rondo wasn’t done.
Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe:
Rondo on elbow to Stephenson: "He weighs about 60 more pounds than me. I don't think I was that strong on that play to knock him down."— gary washburn (@GwashburnGlobe) December 11, 2014
Is Rondo implying Stephenson flopped? Well, I never.
