Rajon Rondo posted his third triple-double of the playoffs in Game 7 vs. the Sixers, scoring 18 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and seven turnovers in the victory.
Triple-doubles are almost standard from Rondo in the postseason, but we're not used to seeing him seal the win with long perimeter jumpers and free throws. He made nine straight points for Boston after Paul Pierce (15 points, nine rebounds) fouled out, draining a 3-pointer, a long jumper with his foot on the line, a layup, and a pair of FTs. Through 11 postseason games, he is averaging 15.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 12.5 assists, and 2.6 steals. There's a reason we weren't sweating the Rondo trade rumors that cropped up this season.
