Boston PG Rajon Rondo paced the Celtics with 21 points before injuring his wrist late in the third quarter of yesterday’s 96-73 victory over the Toronto Raptors at TD Garden. The win finally put a stop to their five-game losing streak, being the longest of the Big 3 era. Boston looked determined to get back on the same page, exploding in the third quarter and led by at least 20 for a good portion of the fourth.
Rondo sat in the final block after landing awkwardly on his right wrist, the result of a flagrant foul on Toronto forward Linas Kleiza. X-rays were negative and Rondo is currently listed as day-to-day.
Paul Pierce contributed a balanced attack as Rondo racked up the points, scoring eight of his own while dishing out a team-high seven assists. Kevin Garnett collected 15 points and 7 boards, respectively. The Celtics will next welcome in the Phoenix Suns Friday night before traveling to DC to matchup against the Wizards on Sunday.
