Rajon Rondo recorded 12 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3PT), six assists, four rebounds, and two steals over 26 minutes in Thursday's 116-86 win over the Warriors.
The Lebron James-less Lakers traveled to the Bay to face off against the Steph Curry-less Warriors in a game that lacked the star power this ticket packed in the preseason. Rondo slipped into the starting lineup in James's absence and failed to recreate his magic, scoring 12 and assisting on six scores throughout the night. Getting just his third start of the season, Rondo was a savvy DFS start in Thursday's lopsided matchup but was unable to take advantage of the opportunity. He'll be relegated back to the bench as James take the starting role back Saturday against the Grizzlies.
