Rajon Rondo Impresses on First Baskets of Season for Boston Celtics

Playing in his first game since tearing his ACL last January, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo looks like his old self.

Rondo scored his first points of the season with this fake behind-the-back pass that fooled Lakers forward Pau Gasol.

On the very next possession, Rondo drove to the lane to record his second basket of the game.

The Celtics entered their game against the Los Angeles Lakers at 14-26, three games out of the eighth-and-final playoff spot in the east, and are hoping that the return of Rondo will quickly turn things around.
