Rajon Rondo was drained. The enormity of his return to Boston had taken a toll on him two weeks after being traded to the Dallas Mavericks.

As he sat at the podium for his postgame press conference, he admitted he was physically and emotionally tired.

The TD Garden crowd greeted Rondo with a standing ovation during starting lineup introductions. After the first quarter, in which he scored 15 points, the Celtics recognized him with a video tribute set to Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars.” Rondo didn’t watch much of the montage. Those memorable images could have been too much.

“It was a big game and it was already emotional enough,” Rondo said.
