If it wasn't the symbolic and lasting image of the 2010-2011 Boston Celtics season it was close. Rajon Rondo's devastating elbow dislocation essentially eliminated any realistic chance the Celtics had to complete a quest for redemption and capture Banner #18. As a tiny measure of gratification, Rondo's return from that game and ensuing steal/dunk was voted into the next round. In convincing fashion as well.
Ok so clearly I'm exaggerating, but you guys weren't giving his play nearly 90% over the Rondo to KG alley-oop against the Clippers. Today's matchup features Paul Pierce donning on the cape in Gotham as Captain Clutch and taking down the Knicks yet again. Going against Pierce's clutch shot is one of the few well-executed plays from Game 1 against Miami: swift ball movement highlighted by a Ray Allen shot-pass to KG for a two-handed slam.
