For the second matchup of the Elite Eight, we get to see two more great plays against the New York Knicks in the playoffs. The Celtics' 2011 playoff run was too short for all of us, but they did provide quite a few memorable moments. Doc Rivers' surprising, yet great play call of Rondo tossing an alley-oop to Kevin Garnett out of a timeout in crunch time will be tough to beat. Going up against it is Rondo's slick baseline dance at MSG that eventually produced a Ray Allen three.
Seed #2: Rondo to KG Alley-Oop against NYK Game 1 – One of the most talked about plays during the early part of the playoffs, Doc Rivers works his magic yet again. Raise your hand if you were expecting that, at that point of the game. Yeah, I didn't think so either.
Seed #7: Rondo Dances on the Baseline Finds Ray for Three – Rondo first sneaks over Amare Stoudemire for an offensive rebound from a Paul Pierce miss, and touch-passes it to Jermaine O'Neal who misses the lay-up. Then, he hustles in for another offensive rebound, dribbles around his back and between the legs while dancing on the baseline then finishes it off with a pass to Ray for a baseline three. Beautiful.
