BOSTON -- Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo recorded eight assists but failed to score or grab a rebound in the Celtics 92-80 victory against the Pacers on Wednesday night. Based on Rondo's recent struggles, teammate Kevin Garnett was asked what was wrong with the team's all-star floor general.

Rondo took just two shots in almost 30 minutes on the floor. Asked if he thought Rondo was bothered by the ankle he tweaked against the Nets, Garnett said, "I don't know. You'd have to talk to him."

Shaquille O'Neal was able to get on the floor and get shots up on Wednesday, which was the first step in his comeback from an Achilles injury. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said before the team took on the Pacers that he wanted to see O'Neal get through a practice and not feel pain before he'd consider bringing him back for games.

You prepare differently for the game," he said. "Pretty much all my career I’ve been a starter but I don’t really mind coming...
