VIDEO: Rajon Rondo Channels Hakeem Olajuwon

Rajon Rondo channeled an NBA legend on Thursday night, throwing a little Hakeem Olajuwon "Dream Shake" in Game 6 of the Boston Celtics' first round series against the Atlanta Hawks. Rondo found himself one-on-one with Josh Smith in the closing minutes of the second quarter, faked the layup with his right hand to get Smith off his feet and navigated his shoulders around to set up the easy bucket.

Video after the jump of course.

The Celtics took a 47-41 lead into halftime against the Hawks, thanks in large part to Rondo's 10 points and six assists to just two turnovers so far. Boston is putting together a solid team effort through the first two quarters, shooting just under 50 percent from the floor as a team.
