Celtics Vs. Heat: Rajon Rondo Displays A Slick Steal And A Fine Fake (GIF)

The Boston Celtics lead the Miami Heat 89-68 with less than 10 minutes to go in the fourth quarter, and while Rajon Rondo isn't scoring as many points as he did in game two, that doesn't mean he isn't contributing. He's playing hard on defense, for example:

And when he's not on defense he's doing his best to juke Heat defenders out of their shoes:

Rondo has played 30 minutes as of the start of the fourth quarter, collecting 13 points, 10 assists, and 2 rebounds, as well as going 3-4 on free throws. Paul Pierce is leading on offense for Boston with 21 points, but Kevin Garnett is right behind him with 20. The Celtics have built momentum as the game goes on and have led by double figures through the whole of the second half.
