CHICAGO, Nov. 12 (UPI) --
Rajon Rondo scored 20 points and distributed 10 assists, including a key helper to Kevin Garnett
Monday that boosted Boston over Chicago 101-95.
Rondo found Garnett for a basket on a lob pass with 41.9 seconds left that turned back a late Bulls rally and handed the Celtics a 97-93 lead.
The Boston point guard also finished with nine rebounds -- just missing a triple-double as Boston broke a five-game losing streak at Chicago.
Garnett finished with 15 points, while Brandon Bass (16), Jason Terry (13) and Paul Pierce (10) also reached double figures for the Celtics.
The Bulls got 26 points and 11 rebounds from Luol Deng while Joakim Noah supplied a double-double of 17 and 11 in the loss.
