Rondo’s Triple-Double Eases Celtics Past Bobcats

Rajon Rondo recorded his 26th career triple-double with 17 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, as the Celtics outlasted the Charlotte Bobcats, 100-89, Monday at the TD Banknorth Garden on Seats for Soldiers night.

Hakim Warrick and Ramon Sessions each had 16 for the struggling Bobcats who started the season 7-5 before losing 23 of their last 27 games. The Celtics have now won six in a row.

The Celtics opened up a 13 point lead early in the first quarter and would push their lead to 18 in the second. The Bobcats hung around and opened the second half on a 13-2 run to knot the game at 58 all.

The poor shooting of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett held the Celtics’ offense back for most of the night as the two combined to shoot just 8-for-27 from the field. Despite the sub-par shooting performance, Pierce managed to lead the Celtics in scoring with 19 points.

Avery Bradley made four three pointers en route to a season high 16 points. The Celtics continued to get a strong effort out their bench and Jeff Green’s 11 points (all in the second quarter) led a 35 point outing from the unit.

The Celtics look to keep the winning streak alive and record their seventh victory in a row when the New Orleans Hornets come to town on Wednesday.
