Jan. 10 7:28 PM PT8:28 PM MT9:28 PM CT10:28 PM ET3:28 GMT11:28 8:28 PM MST10:28 PM EST7:28 UAE (+1)04:2822:28 ET9:28 PM CTNaN:� - Rondo had 12 points in 27 minutes in Tuesday's loss at Washington after not playing the previous five games for reasons the point guard tried explaining pregame.
Analysis: The veteran point guard last played Dec. 30 in a 111-101 loss at Indiana during which he posted a plus-minus rating of minus-20 during 11 first-half minutes. The reason for his benching? "I got a slight explanation from another guy on the (coaching) staff," Rondo said. "The guy told me that he was saving me from myself. I thought it was (garbage). Save me from myself? I've never heard that before in my life. I guess he was trying to do the best thing for me."

Michael Carter-Williams started at point guard against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday after Rondo was benched for the second half in a loss at Indiana the previous day.
Analysis: Coach Fred Hoiberg called it a ''strictly basketball'' move. He would not say if Rondo or Jerian Grant would back up Carter-Williams. The move comes with the Bulls in a 3-7 tailspin heading into Saturday's game. Rondo was held out for the final two quarters against the Pacers after a scoreless first half in which he had three fouls and a minus-20 in the plus/minus category.
