Found August 24, 2012 on Red's Army:
The Celtics had a memorable 7 game series with the Miami Heat, a series they unfortunately lost.  Throughout the series there were several moments that stand out, although they would shine much brighter in Celtic lore had they pulled off the series upset.  Rajon Rondo had quite a few of these plays, even excluding his masterpiece 44-point performance in Game 2, a loss.  During the two huge wins in Boston, there were some plays by Rondo that required about 100 replays before you even figured out how great they were.  Seeing them live in the Garden, you have to pay close attention unless they get replayed on the JumobTron (which many times this does not happen).  Check out a couple of those plays below for today’s matchup.
