LeBron James isn't the only person "coming home" this year.

Monday night's Boston Celtics game was amazing. Yes, you read that correctly, I said the loss was amazing. Before you accuse me of being an advocate of tanking, let me explain why losing to the Chicago Bulls (80-94) for the 2nd straight night qualifies as "amazing."

Rajon Rondo!

That simple. Rondo treated Celtics Nation to a much needed respite from frustration, agony, draft-speculation, Jeff Green bashing, tank-talking, Avery Bradley's contract and Coach Brad Stevens' performance review. Not to mention, Celtics' fans had a very rare glimpse into the mind of the perplexing Rajon Rondo.

In a much anticipated broadcasting debut (and a brilliant marketing ploy by CSNNE), Rajon Rondo sat along side the legendary Mike Gorman for not 1, but 2 full quarters! It was debatable whether Rondo would ever relinquish his mic to Cedric Maxwell for the remainder of the broadcast.

In the meantime, Twitter was ablaze with reactions, criticisms and high-praise for the captain's work, filling in for Tom Heinsohn. Here are some reactions from Boston bloggers, media, beat reporters, locker room crews and over-all great basketball minds. In addition to checking out the reactions to Rondo around Twitter, consider below a list of "must-follows" in Celtics-Nation. By clicking on their Tweets below, you will be linked to their websites (where applicable) and/or their Twitter feeds. As a bit of public service, I've also compiled a list below that will provide direct links to everyone's Twitter handles; like I said, these people are a must-follow!

BOSTON -- Rajon Rondo was finally back in the TD Garden and the offense never looked better. No, he didn’t make the fastest recovery from an ACL tear in history. The Boston Celtics’ star point guard returned from his rehab in Florida to watch his team (from the bench) put up 66 first half points -- the most in any half this season -- en route to a 118-107 win over the Atlanta Hawks (40-33) on Friday night.

Jason Terry (24 points) found his stroke. He knocked down four of his seven three-pointers in the first half. Paul Pierce notched his third triple-double (20 points, team-high 10 assists, and 10 rebounds), all in the absence of Rondo. And Jeff Green -- fresh off his second game-winning layup of the season -- scored a game-high 27 points.

If that wasn’t enough, the Celtics (38-34) faithful might’ve found a new favorite bench player in Shavlik Randolph. As Tommy Heinsohn said “he’s won this crowd over with about four rebounds.” Actually, he had far more than four rebounds. Randolph had his best game by far in a Boston uniform scoring nine points and pulling down a game-high 13 rebounds in 22 minutes of action. He even added a couple big blocks.

The defense might’ve been an issue for the Celtics -- they allowed 100+ points for the third time in four games without Kevin Garnett -- but the offense was more than good enough.

Boston ran up and down the court, getting out in transition and that was a key to the game for a smaller lineup. No one ran faster than Terrence Williams who flew through the Hawks defense with 6:28 left to go in the second quarter and took off from near the foul-line for a monstrous slam to give Boston a 46-41 lead.

The Celtics tied their season-high with 118 points, but it was by far the most they’ve put up in regulation alone. As a team, the Celtics hit 54.2 percent of their field goals (45-83) and 47.8 percent of their three-pointers (11-23) on the night.

Mike Scott, the rookie forward from Virginia, led the Hawks with 19 points on the night. Josh Smith was terribly inefficient, a far cry from the last time he faced the Celtics, going 7-23 from the floor. 17 of those attempts came in the first half.

Even without Al Horford, Atlanta out-rebounded Boston, 40-37. Seven Hawks grabbed at least three rebounds. You couldn’t blame their offense.

Boston might’ve wanted it a little more. With just less than six minutes remaining, the game still within reach, Avery Bradley and Brandon Bass were fighting for a loose ball like their lives depended on it. Bass wound up with the ball in his hands and passed it to Green. Though he was having another great night, Green whipped the ball across the court to Terry who stepped into one of his five three-balls. That gave Boston an 105-94 lead with 5:46 left and Atlanta never threatened.

Every player who stepped onto the court scored. It was a good Friday indeed. The Celtics were simply better than good on offense. They were great.

The Celtics, who are now 22-6 when scoring at least 100 points, will try to continue yet another winning streak in New York on Sunday night against the Knicks.
