50-year-old was playing in just his

BOSTON - Brad Stevens knew he had an all-star point guard when he took the Celtics coaching job, but he didnt really get to see it in his first season on the Boston bench. Detroit Tigers Jersey .Reconstructive knee surgery kept Rajon Rondo out for the first half of Stevens inaugural season in Boston. Rondo hadnt 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.He looks like himself, Stevens said. He kind of looks like what I saw on film before I got here. I dont think he ever looked like that at any time last year. ... But he is back to full speed. And its really good to see.Kelly Olynyk had 19 points and Jeff Green added 17 for Boston, which opened a 29-point lead at the end of the third quarter and coasted to the win.More than an hour after the game ended, Rondo appeared in the locker room and said he was still improving.I wasnt as explosive as I was in the past, he said. At certain points, I felt like I was skipping a beat. Other than that, it was fun being back out there. It was great to be back out there playing basketball again.Mirza Teletovic had 20 points and six rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench for the Nets, who trailed for all but a pair of free throws that opened the game. Joe Johnson scored 19 points for Brooklyn, and Deron Williams had 19 points and eight assists.We never really matched their energy, said centre Mason Plumlee, who picked up two fouls in the first quarter and two more in the third and played just 11 1-2 minutes.Rondo said he didnt decide to play until about an hour before the tipoff, after waking up from a pregame nap and feeling ready to play. Wearing a black brace on his left wrist and hand, Rondo showed no ill effects of the injury, dribbling with both hands and shooting 6 for 9 — better than his career 47.5 shooting percentage.The Celtics led 101-72 at the end of the third quarter, but Brooklyn went on a 12-2 run to start the fourth and cut the deficit to 19. The Nets made it 112-97 on Johnsons 3-pointer with 4 minutes left but couldnt come any closer until the final seconds.Rondos return on opening night stole some of the attention from ex-Celtic Kevin Garnett, who received a big cheer when he was introduced with the starting lineups and went on to score 10 points with six rebounds.The 38-year-old Garnett played six seasons in Boston, leading the Celtics to the NBA finals twice and the teams unprecedented 17th championship in 2008. He picked up a technical foul late in the game, prompting a KG! chant from the crowd.After the game, Garnett walked through the hallway between the locker rooms, greeting the building staff and other people he knew from his time in Boston.Its always great to come to back here. I love Beantown, he said. Im always bleeding green.The Celtics opened a 21-12 lead in the first period and led by 10 with four minutes left in the second when they went on a 17-1 run to close the half. Marcus Thornton had eight points in the second quarter, and Rondo had four more assists to give him nine for the half.TIP-INS: Rondo was 0 for 4 from the free throw line. ... Nets coach Lionel Hollins, in his first game with Brooklyn, picked up a technical foul for arguing with the referees in the second quarter. ... Garnett got a big cheer when he was introduced before the game. ... Boston shot 61 per cent in the first half.FORMER CELTIC: Seeing a familiar face when he walked into the TD Garden, Garnett seemed ready for big things after a year in which his age seemed to be showing. Asked how he felt, Garnett said, Really good. Youll see. Just watch.HONORARY CELTIC: The Celtics owners presented Isaiah Austin with a jersey and named him an honorary Celtic for life during a break in the second period. A week before the NBA draft, in which he had been a potential first-round pick, the sophomore centre from Baylor was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, a rare genetic heart disorder. He is now working to call attention to the disease.UP NEXT:Celtics: At Houston on Saturday.Nets: At Detroit on Saturday. Cameron Maybin Grey Jersey .The countrys prosecutors office says the shooting occurred Saturday in a restaurant on Margarita Island.The Venezuelan newspaper El Universal says he is in stable condition at a hospital. Justin Verlander Pink Jersey . With one minute and twenty-six seconds on the clock in the first period of the Leafs preseason finale against Detroit, Lombardi stepped onto the ice at Air Canada Centre.SAUCIER, Miss. - Jeff Maggert admitted his decisive putt on No. 17 at Fallen Oak wasnt supposed to be one that actually dropped. He was just trying to get it close. So when the 50-foot putt rolled up and down a big ridge as it broke from left to right — and then fell into the hole — the Champions Tour rookie was as surprised as anyone. He had been consistent all week. Now just a little bit of luck had pushed him to victory at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic at Fallen Oak on Sunday. "You cant count on those going in very often," Maggert said with a grin. Maggert became the 17th player in Champions Tour history to win in his debut, shooting a 4-under 68 to capture his first victory since the 2006 St. Judes Classic on the PGA Tour. The 50-year-old fell into a tie for the lead with Billy Andrade after making bogey on No. 16, but responded with the astonishing putt that pushed him back ahead. "I was just trying to hit an easy lag putt," Maggert said. "I wanted an easy tap-in for par and it was just one of those things — the ball found the hole." When it dropped, Maggert shook his head in disbelief. He finished the tournament with an 11-under 205. Maggert is a three-time PGA Tour winner who turned 50 in February. His consistent weekend included a 68 on Friday, a 69 on Saturday and he capped his debut performance at Fallen Oak with four birdies on the back nine on Sunday to earn the $240,000 paycheque. "I had expectations to play well, but I didnt know if I would play well enough to win," Maggert said. "Id been struggling a little with my game, but eeverything just kind of came together. Cameron Maybin White Jersey. It was one of the best tournaments, as far as ball striking, that Ive had in a few years in any event. That really carried me through." Andrade, who started the day tied with Fred Funk for the lead, shot a 71 to finish in second two strokes back. Andrade and Funk started the final round on top of a tight leaderboard, with a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples, Jay Haas and Maggert. The round was pushed back two hours because of rain, but the slightly soggy course didnt affect scoring much. Funk fell off the pace quickly, finishing with a 75. Haas was steady, but could never get on a roll and shot a 71 to finish tied for third with Bernhard Langer, who jumped up the leaderboard with a 68. Couples — who won the Toshiba Classic last week — faded after shooting a 66 to take a two-stroke lead in the opening round. He shot a 72 on Sunday to finish fifth. That left Andrade as Maggerts biggest challenger. The 50-year-old was playing in just his fourth Champions Tour event and had the lead at the turn, but made three bogeys on the back nine to fall out of contention. Andrade hasnt played much the past four years while working part-time as an analyst for The Golf Channel. He said Sundays back nine was frustrating, but that the weekend had shown him "that I still do have a little talent and I can play with these guys." "I havent been in this type of situation in a long time," Andrade said. "Its probably going to take me a little while to get the rust off when it comes to nerves and being in the hunt." Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
