This Kevin Garnett video of his game-winning alley-oop Thursday night reminds us that the old man still has a little life left in his legs.

It wouldn't have been possible without Rajon Rondo's fantastic feed.

Garnett finished an alley-oop off a beautiful feed from Rondo to give the Celtics a thrilling 102-101 win over the Sixers Thursday night in Philadelphia.

With the victory, Boston has now won nine straight games.

It certainly wasn't easy.

Philadelphia came into the game having won five straight at home and challenged the Celtics all night long. The Sixers led by as many as eight points late in the third quarter but were never able to pull away.

Things got very exciting in the final two minutes.

Andre Iguodala gave Philadelphia the lead on a shot in the lane with 6.6 six seconds remaining.

After a timeout, Boston drew up a play for Rondo to get the ball off the inbounds.

Garnett moved to set a pick, but caught the Sixers off guard by slipping towards the basket.

Rondo made a perfect pass against light pressure to set up the winning score.

With no timeouts remaining, Philadelphia threw the ball directly to Garnett near mid-court.

Ray Allen led the Celtics with 23 points, while Rondo added 19 points and 14 assists.

Jodie Meeks continued his strong play of late, leading the Sixers with 19 points.

Doc Rivers' team is looks like the cream of the crop in the NBA right now, with contributions coming from up and down the lineup.
