With their backcourt together for only the ninth time all season, Celtics fans saw what Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley can do in Boston's 101-96 victory over the Heat on Wednesday night.

Rondo had a near triple-double and key baskets down the stretch. Bradley scored 23 points, including six 3s.

There's been plenty of talk this season about Rondo's future in Boston, but what about his backcourt mate? Bradley is a restricted free agent at season's end, and on 98.5 The Sports Hub's Toucher & Rich morning show, team president Danny Ainge was asked about Bradley.

"I think Avery is a terrific player and he's gonna be with us," Ainge said. "We have the ability to match [any offer], he's a restricted free agent and we have every intention of having Avery with us."
