The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics 107-104. Last night was the return of point guard Rajon Rondo who finished the game with 8 points with 2 rebounds and 4 assists in just 19 minutes of playing time. Forward Jeff Green had 12 points with 9 rebounds and 2 assists. Kelly Olynk had 25 points with 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Jared Sullinger had 11 points with 7 rebounds and 2 assists and guard Avery Bradley scored 12 points with 4 rebounds and 3 assists. 

Judging from last night's loss, Rondo was not totally himself, but will soon return to his normal playing style within the next few games. Kelly Olynk has also proven so far this year that he's worth starting and should be consodered for the starting role.

After the game, Brad Stevens explained his thoughts on Rajon Rondo's play:

"I thought he made a lot of plays down the stretch, [Rondo]just came up a little bit short. But I was glad he had the ball."
