Wasn’t that pretty? Rajon Rondo delivered a masterful performance (11 points, 18 assists, 0 TOs) as the Celtics beat the Pistons, 118 – 111. The team had 5 players in double figures.
With his 18th assist of the night, Rondo passed Bill Russell (5th place) on the team’s all-time assist list.

Rondo’s A/TO ratio was 18-0. Eighteen-to-zero. The team’s A/TO ratio was 38-5.
Jeff Green led the Celtics with 27 points on 11-19 FG. Kris Humphries had 20 points and 11 rebounds against Detroit’s mighty front-line.
As expected, the Pistons destroyed the Celtics on the glass (54-39) and scored 64 points in the paint. Andre Drummond had 18 points and 22 rebounds.
