Rondo returns, helps Celtics beat Nets 121-105

BOSTON (AP) Brad Stevens knew he had an all-star point guard when he took the Celtics' coaching job, but he didn't really get to see it in his first season on the Boston bench.

Reconstructive knee surgery kept Rajon Rondo out for the first half of Stevens' inaugural season in Boston. Rondo hadn't yet regained his old form when, as Stevens prepared for Year 2, Rondo broke his hand.

After missing the entire exhibition season, though, Rondo returned for the regular season opener on Wednesday night and scored 13 points, adding 12 assists and seven rebounds in 30 minutes to help the Celtics beat the Brooklyn Nets 121-105.
