The Big Three got plenty of rest today, Sully had a breakthrough game, and Rondo had 20 assists in 32 minutes. This game did a lot to wash away the aftertaste of Thursday's last minute loss against the Nets. KG got to dance with Gino! The Cs did toy with Toronto some, but then they took care of business. That's the best way to get rest.
Rondo extended his assists streak, but, more importantly (from my point of view), he did a good job defensively on his opposite number. That streak has started again!
Now I'd like to see Rondo dunk over Linas Kleiza! Terry had his highest scoring game.
Celtics Life thinks that Rondo's assist streak may be due to home scoring. He averages 11.5 apg on the road and 15 apg at home. I think the Cs play better at home. Probably they get happier gamescoring too. I'm sure that happens in every arena.
The team as a whole had 37 assists tonight!!
