NEW YORK -- Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and Miami Heat power forward Chris Bosh were both courtside - sorry, front row - at the Duckie Brown menswear runway show that unspooled Thursday, the first full day of New York Fashion Week. Afterward we caught up with Rondo, who told us he'd just taken in his first fashion show - ever.  What was his take-away? “Boy, it went by really fast,” he said. Being as he was new to the fashion show scene, we wondered aloud if it would be unfair to ask him if there was anything from Duckie Brown's spring-summer 2013 collection of voluminous denim trousers, open back jackets, plaid coveralls and strappy leather shoulder harnesses he might see himself wearing.

On a night when the NBA had All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo back on the court after a year's absence, it was Kevin Durant scoring a career-high 54 points, some stellar Western Conference showdowns and the Lakers stealing the spotlight on Friday night. That now leads into a slate of games Saturday that features the Los Angeles Clippers -- coming off a 109-95 victory over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden -- against the Indiana Pacers in the first game of the day at 4 p.m. PST. Indiana, the Eastern Conference leader with an NBA-best record of 31-7, was off Friday night.

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended for one game for sticking out his chest to bump ref Marc Davis during Boston's 83-74 loss to Atlanta in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. The suspension means Rondo will not be able to play Tuesday night in Atlanta. Rondo was unhappy with a foul called by Davis. He was immediately ejected from the game. “I didn't intentionally chest-bump him, but that's what it appears to be,” Rondo said Sunday after the game.

The Lakers didn't do much defensively against the Boston Celtics on Friday night at TD Garden, until the final 3 minutes and 12 seconds when they finally clamped down and rallied for a 107-104 victory. A Gerald Wallace layup gave the Celtics a 104-96 advantage in what looked like another defeat for the Lakers, who had lost 12 of their last 13 games. Instead, the Lakers got hot from three-point range with baskets from Wesley Johnson, Jodie Meeks and Kendall Marshall to quickly pull ahead by one. The Celtics struggled to score but forced a jump ball with 18.3 seconds left.

Rajon Rondo didn't mean to bump into an official -- he may have even tripped into him. At least, that's his side of the story in the aftermath of the crazy finish to the Boston Celtics' 83-74 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. Whether Rondo's chest bump of official Marc Davis was intentional or not, the Celtics may be facing Game 2 of their opening round NBA playoff series without their star point guard. David Stern is not known for taking it easy on players who make contact with officials, but Boston Coach Doc Rivers said he feels the commissioner might make an exception in Rondo's case.  “I'm always worried, but I would be surprised if that happens,” Rivers said of a suspension.

Rajon Rondo may have gotten his last assist of the season. And he did so while wearing street clothes. The Boston Celtics point guard got an enthusiastic response from the crowd when he entered the arena at TD Garden during the second overtime of Sunday's game against the Miami Heat. Many of the fans already knew the news that an MRI had determined Rondo had torn his right anterior cruciate ligament, a season-ending injury. The players did not learn the extent of Rondo's injury until after the game.

Two years ago, Rajon Rondo was the Boston Celtics' question mark as they headed into a Finals showdown with the Lakers. It trailed him as speculators wondered whether the second-year point guard was too green and erratic at 22 to lead veterans against veterans for an NBA title. But 24 months later, Rondo has become the Celtics' exclamation point, one of the NBA's top point guards, and now casts his own shadow, which is growing with every magazine cover he graces and highlight reel he owns.

"It may be this month, next month. It'll be before the All-Star break. " Rondo, who began full workouts in December, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a game against the Miami Heat last Jan. 27. Celtics Coach Brad Stevens said there is no target date and one has not been discussed.

Brad Stevens, who built tiny Butler University into an NCAA powerhouse, will try to guide a rebuilding project with the Boston Celtics and point guard Rajon Rondo, the veteran leader whom Stevens must now decide whether he will build around. Of course, Stevens will try to accomplish something at which most college coaches fail: become a success in the NBA. The Celtics already know, having watched current NCAA champion Rick Pitino of Louisville spin his wheels in the pro ranks to a record of 102-146 in four seasons.

Twitter has become an integral part of the NBA experience. Fans are able to reach out to their favorite players - although they don't always come with the greatest of intentions. On Sunday, Jimmy Kimmel aired a segment entitled "Mean Tweets: NBA Edition" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live. " An assortment of NBA players including Lakers Kobe Bryant and Metta World Peace read real, mean-spirited tweets on the air.  The segment played for laughs, but the original tweets were mostly outlandish.

Key stat: LeBron James is making a career-best 56.5% of his shots, which is all the more stunning when you consider he shot 41.7% as a rookie sensation nine seasons ago. Outlook: Milwaukee may not be the 1985-86 Chicago Bulls, who made the playoffs despite a 30-52 record, but it deserves dishonorable mention for beep, beep, beeping into the playoffs like a truck in reverse.

Rajon Rondo was just telling us what we already knew about the Miami Heat - those guys do a lot of crying. Heat Coach Eric Spoelstra basically admitted as much last year when he said that there was some crying in the locker room during a losing streak. So why should anyone care that Rondo, the Boston Celtics' point guard, pointed out during a halftime interview on ESPN that Miami's players were “complaining and crying to the referees in transition.” OK, maybe reporter Doris Burke might care that Rondo really didn't answer her question ("What holes were you guys exploiting?"

Even though Rajon Rondo is a millionaire, he accepted an internship position with GQ magazine during Fashion Week in New York City. Rondo, a guard on the Boston Celtics, will be working for the magazine this month before the NBA season begins in October. It's cool to see basketball players experimenting with other professions. Last summer during the extended NBA lockout, Metta World Peace dabbled in comedy and music production . Kevin Love tried his luck with volleyball . Kobe Bryant, on the other hand, joked with The Times that if he weren't playing basketball, he'd be a bum. Rondo has always shown an interest in fashion.

Lamenting the departed in Boston Rajon Rondo was lost for the season and the Boston Celtics continued to win. Jared Sullinger was lost for the season and the Celtics continued to win. Leandro Barbosa was lost for the season and … well, you get the idea. The injury-plagued Celtics headed into the All-Star break with a healthy share of eight wins in their last nine games since Rondo sustained a torn knee ligament late last month, the first in a series of bad injury news for the franchise.
