Rondo, Pierce Switch Roles In Win Over Raptors

By on January 19, 2012 in

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.
