Rajon Rondo: 16 Points, 11 Assists, 10 Rebounds (Video courtesy of OfficialCeltics) ESPN Boxscore Rajon Rondo had 16 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds against the Hawks on Friday night. It was his third consecutive triple-double versus Atlanta. Only one NBA player had three straight triple- doubles against the same team in the 1980s (Magic Johnson did so vs. three teams in that decade, the Nuggets, 76ers and Rockets), as did only one man in the 1990s (Chris Webber vs. the Warriors) and one guy in the 2000s (Jason Kidd vs. the Bobcats). Rondo is now the first player to turn that hat trick in the current decade. Unfortunately the Celtics still couldn't get the win. How did you feel about his play last night?
