triple double

Rajon Rondo led the Boston Celtics to a series-tying, 97-87 Game 4 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers with 29 points, 18 assists, and 13 rebounds.

Yes. Rondo, who stands 6'1", grabbed 18 rebounds.

Cleveland's front-line starters, LeBron James (6'8"), Antawn Jamison (6'9"), and Shaquille O'Neal (7'1"), combined for only 20 rebounds, with James grabbing nine of those!

It was a triple-double for the ages. As reported at Yahoo! Sports, "Rondo became the third player in playoff history to have at least 29 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Oscar Robertson had 32 points, 19 rebounds and 13 assists in 1963, and Wilt Chamberlain had 29 points, 36 rebounds and 13 assists in 1967."
