Rajon Rondo returned to the Boston Celtics after spending almost a year recovering from a knee injury and missed a 3-pointer that could have sent the game into overtime, sealing a 107-104 win for the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.
Pau Gasol had 24 points and 13 rebounds for the Lakers, and Kendall Marshall finished with 19 points and 14 assists. Ryan Kelly scored 20 points, and Wesley Johnson added 11 points and 11 rebounds as the Lakers snapped a six-game losing streak.
Kelly Olynyk scored a season-high 25 points for Boston. Rondo, who was limited to 20 minutes in his first game since he tore an anterior cruciate ligament on Jan. 25, 2013, had 8 points, 4 assists and 2 rebounds.
