It will probably be lost in the furor over the Miami Heat's incandescent run in the fourth quarter to seize control of this Game 7 and seemingly their destiny, but Rajon Rondo has played very well in this Game 7. How well? Well, how about "set an NBA record for triple-doubles in Game 7s" well, with 22 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds?
Rondo is the first player to have two Game 7 triple-doubles in NBA history. #elias— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) June 10, 2012
That's the second of Rondo's career — and it's also the second consecutive Game 7 triple-double of Rondo's career. Rondo put up 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists to help the Celtics beat the 76ers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Also: Rondo turned 26 in February, and has played six years in the NBA. He's okay, I guess.
