In three games since returning from suspension, Rondo has averaged 13.3 points, 12 assists, and 7.7 rebounds per game, posting a triple-double during Friday's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, and  Rondo nearly produced another in Saturday's rematch.

Melo averaged 6.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 23.4 minutes over five games for the Red Claws.
