One of my favorite YouTube accounts, GDFactoryClips, uploaded a classic performance from Rajon Rondo yesterday. The year was 2010, and the Celtics were making their improbable run to the NBA Finals. After being blown out on their home floor in G3, Boston was in jeopardy of heading back to Cleveland on the brink of elimination. They needed someone to step-up in G4, and that someone was Rajon Rondo.
In what some called one of the “greatest playoff performances in Celtic history“, Rajon dished, drove and rebounded his way to a triple-double: 29 pts, 18 rebs & 13 asts. He also got to the FT line at will, going 11 of 16 from the charity stripe. The Celtics went on to eliminate the Cavs in 6 games, in what was Lebron James’ final playoff series as a Cavalier. Enjoy all of Rajon’s triple-double in the video below, and check out GD’s channel for tons of great NBA vids.
