Rajon Rondo had an admirable shoowing last night in the Taco Bell skills competition, making it to the final round against Deron Williams and Tony Parker, before falling to the Spurs veteran point guard. You can check out the full video from the final round above (apologies for video quality).
Here’s Chris Forsberg from ESPN Boston with a full breakdown:
Rondo needed a tie-breaker to edge Washington’s John Wall and get into the final round — actually navigating the obstacle course in the night’s best time of 27.5 seconds. But up first in the final round, Rondo needed three attempts at the bounce-pass station, finishing at 34.6 seconds. Parker was nearly flawless and checked in at 32.8 seconds, while New Jersey’s Deron Williams took third place at 41.4 seconds.
Rondo and Wall each produced first-round times of 32.8 seconds, forcing the tie-breaker. Ironically, that turned out to also be the winning time for Parker.
