Beast of the Night: Rajon Rondo notched 19 points, 5 rebounds, 14 assists, 3 steals and even hit one three-pointer in last night’s last-second victory over the Sixers. He shot 64 percent (9-14) from the field, had three turnovers and played 47:14, a good indication that his health is improved for now. Rondo’s averaging a whopping 14.1 assists per game so far this season, 4.3 more than last season’s 9.8 mark.
