Rajon Rondo SUSPENDED for game 2
When Rondo is off the court the Celtics power ranking drops 4.70 points. The projected spread for Atlanta home games is thus adjusted from ATL -6.59 to ATL -11.29.
Rondo has a bigger impact on the total. Here are the Celtics projected Points For (PF) and Points Against (PA) when Rondo is ON versus OFF the court:
PF: 96.91 >>> 89.44 (Net: -7.47)
PA: 93.68 >>> 90.92 (Net: -2.76)
The projected total of 172.46 should therefor be adjusted down 10.23 points to 162.23.
Projected line and total for game 2 (without Rondo):
Atlanta Hawks: -11.29 / Total: 162.23
