Rajon Rondo’s Unbelievable Tip-In

Rajon Rondo has made a habit of creating highlight-reel plays in the 2010 NBA Playoffs.  The play against Orlando when he dove for a loose ball was a perfect example of what can happen when the point guard combines his incredible athletic ability with full-tilt hustle.  Last night, Rondo made another hustle play at a huge point in the game.  Check out the video of Rajon Rondo’s tip-in against the Lakers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, courtesy of YouTube user rondo9celtics:

Phil Jackson told his players in a fourth-quarter huddle that the Celtics know how to lose games late.  If not for Rondo’s efforts, he may have been justified in what he was preaching.  This particular video is a bit dramatic, but it shows how the Celtics point guard came out of nowhere to make a play on the ball.  It also shows that he was fouled by Lamar Odom on the play. It’s plays like this one that have the Celtics in a position to win their second title in three seasons.

    He does so many of the little things and makes the plays other people simply cannot. He did a lot of that in Game 2 as well and he’s been a huge reason why the team is winning. Just another one of those plays it seems only Rondo can make.
