Jeremy Lin Meets Learning Curve, Thanks to Rajon Rondo, Celtics

With all of the hype surrounding the Lin’s return to Boston, you were almost hoping for an upset. Almost. The Celtics pulled out the win 115-111 in OT yesterday, Rondo posted another triple-double, and Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni made some post-game excuses. “He’s got a learning curve,” D’Antoni said. “There’s no way you can throw him in there the first time he’s ever done it and expect him to be perfect. He’s going to be good. It’s just a matter of going through some learning experiences.” [CBS]
