Celtics defeat Bucks behind Rondo's triple double

After a sluggish first half the Celtics out scored the Bucks 27 to 13 in the pivotal 3rd quarter and defeated the Bucks to get their record back up to the .500 mark. Rajon Rondo recorded his third triple double of the season, while Kevin Garnett continued to back up his bark with 25 points and 10 rebounds.

Rondo thoroughly outplayed the Bucks own young star point guard Brandon Jennings, who was held to only 6 points on 2 of 11 shooting. Rondo finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

The Celtics continue their home stand Friday night versus the Nets. Search tickets.
