Rajon Rondo came up one board shy of a triple double as the Boston Celtics went on to win their eighth straight over the Milwaukee Bucks 98-89 last night at TD Garden. All 11 of Rondo’s total points were produced down the stretch during the C’s 27-18 fourth quarter run. Kevin Garnett led the charge in scoring for Boston with 25 points. Paul Pierce and Kendrick Perkins netted 15 apiece with Ray Allen and Rasheed Wallace each throwing in a side of 13.
“With everybody else on the team, you kind of lose focus on Rondo a little bit,” said Bucks rookie star PG Brandon Jennings. “You’re so worried about Pierce scoring, Garnett scoring and Allen scoring. But he did a good job for them, attacking the basket, making plays. And he made some big free throws.” The Bucks will try to earn their first victory in five games tonight against the Toronto Raptors. The Celtics are scheduled to take on the Wizards tomorrow in Washington.
