Right before tipoff, the Celtics learned the Heat’s beloved Lebron James would not be playing in last night’s game. This was great news for the Celtics but their win wasn’t as easy as you’d think. Cue: Rajon Rondo!
Jeff Green’s shot a 3-pointer with just under 3 minutes left when Rondo made two shots; ultimately breaking the C’s five-game losing streak with a 101-96 victory over Miami! Rondo returned to the game on January 17th after a year of recovery from a knee injury and came through in the clutch last night!
We were definitely glad to have Rondo back (and Lebron out) last night!
