Throughout the season we saw many remarkable plays from both Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett. No other opponent may have felt their collective impact more than the New York Knicks. It didn't matter if it occurred during the pre-season, regular season or playoffs, the Celtics owned the Knicks this season and Rondo and KG had several fantastic plays. KG also extracted revenge on the "young and athletic" front court of the Washington Wizards with a handful of youthful plays himself. The following matchup should be a close one.
Seed #10: Rondo and KG Earning Tommy Points – Glen Davis scrambles underneath the hoop for the ball and kicks it out to Ray Allen who misfires on a baseline three. It seems like a typical long rebound heading out of bounds with Amare Stoudemire making a weak effort to the ball. Rondo comes out of nowhere and outruns Amare, firing the ball off of Stoudemire and keeping the possession for the C's.
Next, as Chauncey Billups tries a routine bounce pass off a screen and roll with Amare, it goes off Rondo's foot and heads towards the back court where KG and Amare both dive for the ball, and KG is able to tie up the ball with Amare and force a jump ball. Great hustle plays by both Rondo and KG.
Seed#23: KG Posterizes McGee – The Celtics are clinging to a mere three-point lead with just over a minute remaining in the first half. Rajon Rondo is calling for what looks like a basic "Floppy" play for Ray Allen. The Wizards seem to snuff this out at first, but Ray uses a quick screen-and-roll option and bounces a pass to KG who posterizes McGee.
