I say it every year, Rondo is one of the best playoff performers of all-time and probably top 5 when you say playoff games on national television.
Last night was another triple double and another big shot near the end of the game that we can add to our quarterly Rondo triple double tribute.
Let’s take a look back at some of Rondo’s best triple doubles
2008 vs Pacers: 16pts, 13 rebs & 17 asts.
This was Rondo’s first triple double and also was his career high in assist
2008 Playoffs vs Bulls: Rondo became the first Celtic player with 2 triple doubles in the same series since Bird did it in 1986. He also became the first player with multiple triple-doubles in the same playoff series since Jason Kidd in 2002.
2008 Playoffs vs Magic. Rondo’s triple doubles tied Bird’s franchise record.
2010 vs Knicks: Rondo dishes out a career high 24 assist to go with 10pts and 10rebs. It tied him with Isiah Thomas as the only players in NBA history to have at least 24 assists in a triple-double
