Celtics start post-Rondo era with win over Wolves

BOSTON (AP) Celtics coach Brad Stevens was curious how his team would play in its first game without Rajon Rondo.

Boston did just fine.

Moving the ball crisply one day after the NBA assists leader was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, the Celtics beat the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves 114-98 on Friday night.
