Evil genius Rajon Rondo used every tactic in the book to stall game-winning free throw attempt

New, comments

Of course it worked.

You have heard of icing a field goal kicker. Rajon Rondo just iced a free throw shooter to save the Kings on Monday night.

Kemba Walker found himself at the foul line with no time on the clock and the Hornets down one to the Kings. Walker calmly stepped to the stripe and knocked down the first free throw to tie the game. Before he could take the second, Rondo did everything possible to delay the shot from happening, crisscrossing through the paint several times to give Walker more time to think about his shot.

Of course, Walker missed and the game headed into overtime. Reminder: Rondo is one of the smartest dudes in the game. Kings fans enjoyed it.
