All Rondo

Rajon Rondo put a beyond-sick fake on Rasheed Wallace midway through the quarter. Rondo drove to the left side of the lane, planted, and up-faked. When Wallace bit, Rondo spun to his left and put up a nifty hook. So pretty.

The play was sandwiched between a driving lay-up and a jumper from the corner. Rondo is playing like he has something to prove so far. He has 10 points, and his floater with 5:40 left just forced Detroit to call a timeout.

It’s 17-11 Celtics at the 5:40 mark, and the crowd is on its feet with an electric standing ovation.
