Rajon Rondo's Buzzer Beater Helps Slow Atlanta's Run

For most of the third quarter, the Boston Celtics have not been playing well. The Atlanta Hawks got some stops, got early offense and sliced away the Celtics' lead. That's why this shot by Rajon Rondo to end the third quarter was huge.


Rondo tried dribbling into the paint here, but had to settle for a stepback 20-footer that he nailed with a man in his face. The shot maintained a Celtics four-point lead, and in this game, with these offenses, every point is significant.
