Rajon Rondo loves numbers and the flair for the dramatic.
And Monday night, after the Celtics lost, 104-92, to the Houston Rockets at TD Garden, the Celtics point guard tweeted a string of numbers that seemed to give a clue as to when he will make his much-anticipated season debut
Late Monday, Rondo, who has been sidelined all season while recovering from knee surgery, tweeted the following: “29,233,380 secs”
That time equates to 338 days, 8 hours, and 23 minutes.
It appears to be the exact duration of time between when he had reconstructive surgery on his right knee to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament (Feb. 13, 2013) and this Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers at TD Garden. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
