The Celtics snapped their nine-game losing streak, traded Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks, and had point guard Rajon Rondo back in uniform today. Although Rondo did not play, he was on the court and participated during warm ups.

Playing off of Rondo's tweet yesterday about his return, and figuring we'd need pictures of him for tomorrow's paper, I thought I'd share what I captured, counting down the seconds to Friday's game. The time was read off of my camera's timestamp:
