Celtics stop the Knicks in OT

Triple-double by Rondo aids Celtics’ OT win

The anticipation of Linsanity overshadowed the Rajon Rondo trade intrigue for a few hours Sunday, allowing Rondo to enter the Celtics’ showdown with the New York Knicks as the other guy. While he relishes his privacy, Rondo is motivated by perceived slights, and he probably spent the past few days wondering if anyone believed Jeremy Lin was the best point guard on the floor.

Rondo then went out and gave a stellar performance that thrilled the TD Garden crowd. He controlled the pace, seemingly chased down every loose rebound, and passed to a fault in collecting his 17th career triple-double and second in three games.
