How Good Were Rondo's Stats? Really Good

You could tell that Rondo was dominating the game yesterday, but it wasn't till the end that I realized that he was having one of those special statistical days. It is one thing to have a triple double (impressive in its own right) but another thing to do it with numbers like this. He finished with 32 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds. Wow. Here are some additional stats to put it into perspective.

The Rajon Rondo conundrum - WEEI | Paul Flannery

How good was Rondo’s game? That line has only been reached nine other times in the history of the NBA, by six other players. (Magic Johnson did it three times.) The roll call: Magic, Larry Bird, LeBron James, Jason Kidd, Reggie Theus and Baron Davis. (Hat tip to Beckley Mason for the find).

Stats and Info: Rondo's productive night

Just how good was Rajon Rondo's triple-double effort Sunday night? According to ESPN Stats and Info, Rondo scored or assisted on 65 of the Celtics' 95 points (68.4 percent). It was tied for the second-most points produced by a single player in a game this season (and just the seventh 60-plus game of the year).

Yup, that's a special game. Actually winning the game helps too.
