Can you name the C's last triple double before Rondo?

It's NOT Gamble, but he did have one. The NBA started keeping track of the stat in 1979.  Since that time, 117 triple doubles have been recorded by 8 different Boston Celtics players (all of these numbers I'm mentioning include playoffs). Between 1979 and 1992, Larry Bird had 69 of the first 71 triple doubles in franchise history.  During his run, Robert Parish (3/29...

Did Doc calling the Celtics soft help light a fire underneath them?

It's been eight days, and three games, since Doc Rivers called his team soft following their rather embarrassing loss at home against the Nets. Since then the team is 2-1, beating the Blazers by 18, losing in Milwaukee by 3 (both of these games without Rajon Rondo) and then beating the Timberwolves by 10 last night.
