Rondo Collects Triple-Double Amidst Trade Rumors

By on March 1, 2012 in

Celtics PG Rajon Rondo contributed 15 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his 16th career triple-double during last night’s 102-96 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden. The two-time All-Defensive first-teamer also limited Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings to just six points on 2-of-11 shooting.

Rondo’s name continues to┬áresurface in regards to trade rumors. ESPN released a report yesterday that stated Boston’s high interest in trading the five-year veteran. Despite the increased chatter, Rondo certainly proved his worth en route to Boston’s second straight win since the All-Star break.

“On both ends of the court, Rondo played tremendous,” Celtics captain Paul Pierce said. “He did a great job of shutting down Brandon Jennings, and he’s out there getting rebounds, doing things, making passes – he made us a tough team to beat.”

Kevin Garnett controlled the inside game for the C’s with 25 points and 10 rebounds. Brandon Bass and Ray Allen scored 16 and 15, respectively. The Celtics have a string of home games coming up against the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks and Houston Rockets. Find the best available Boston Celtics tickets here at!
