On Sunday afternoon the Boston Celtics improved to 10-0 when Rajon Rondo scores over 18 points. Rondo had more than that in the first half alone. The C’s point guard had more than that in the first half alone, on the way to a career-high 32-point game. With KG out for 2-3 weeks with a a right knee strain, Rondo made a strong case for being included in any “Big-Three” talk in the short term. Rounding out the C’s top scorers, Ray Allen had 31 points, and Paul Pierce had 26 (going 10-10 from the free throw line). The Celtics overpowered the Suns, shooting over 63% from the field.
“Guys step up and play their roles even better when Kevin is out,” Rajon Rondo told the AP’s Bob Baum.
The Celtics face off against the Denver Nuggets on Monday night at 9:00pm. With the win, the Celtics are just half a game behind the Eastern Conference leader Cleveland Cavaliers.
