Rajon Rondo nominated for Player of the Week

Rajon Rondo returned from his suspension with a vengeance.

Rondo nominated for Player of the Week - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

For the second time this season, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was nominated for the Eastern Conference Player of the Week honor, but was edged by a member of the Atlanta Hawks. In three games since returning from suspension, Rondo has averaged 13.3 points, 12 assists, and 7.7 rebounds per game, posting a triple-double during Friday's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers (and nearly producing another in Saturday's rematch).

The Hawk that won the award: Josh Smith - hey, wouldn't it be neat if they played on the same team. I'm sure none of you have thought about that.
