We have no shortage of candidates for Player of the Game in this game. Every starter was in double figures tonight. Two players, KG and Perk, had double doubles. Ray Allen had a season high 31 points. But, the player of the game has to be Rajon Rondo. He had the first triple double for a Celtic since Ryan Gomes had one in Novmeber of 2006. He is the first guard with a triple double since DJ did it in 1987.
He had a triple double of 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists with 10:30 left in the third quarter and finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds, 17 assists, and 3 steals. He also ended up with a fat lip courtesy of a collision with TJ Ford's head. How much fun has it been to watch Rondo improve game by game? And, he is still young and will just continue to get better.
