Knicks Vs. Celtics: Rajon Rondo Winning Matchup Vs. Jeremy Lin

Perhaps the best individual matchup from Knicks vs. Celtics appeared to be Rajon Rondo vs. Jeremy Lin. I use "appeared to be" because Rondo has dominated the Knicks point guard so far. Look at these numbers (via ABC):

In fact, Rondo had 13 points, 15 assists and nine rebounds after three quarters, which is a classic Rondo-Triple-Double in waiting. (EDIT: Rondo *did* in indeed grab that triple-double).

Meanwhile, Lin has as many turnovers (six) as points (six).

So crafty. So ... Rondo.

If these Rajon Rondo Trade Rumors are serious, someone would do well to put a package together.

Paul Pierce has also gone off in the second half. He hit the three-pointer in the above video and also blew by Lin, below:
