    Rajon Rondo made up for lost time in a big way for the Boston Celtics after missing a game because of a sprained right ankle. Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo returned to action Saturday after sitting out Thursday's loss at Brooklyn due to a sprained right ankle. Rondo was back on the court for a blowout victory over the Raptors on Saturday, dishing out 20 assists in just 32 minutes of action, guiding Boston to a team-wide 56.6 percent shooting mark from the field. Rondo, who played only 1:26 in the fourth quarter, is within four games of tying John Stockton for the second-longest streak in NBA history for consecutive games with 10 or more assists. Team trainer Ed Lacerte gave him clearance to return against Toronto on Saturday morning. The Celtics won 107-89. Rivers noted that, as a coach, he's fine with the rare early tip-off, but admitted players typically hate them. "As a coach, I love them not because of the game, because it gives you a ton of time after the game to prepare for the next game," said Rivers, whose squad travels to Detroit after the game to play the Pistons on Sunday.
