Rajon Rondo goes Willis Reed: Celtics beat Heat

The Boston Celtics took care the Miami Heat Saturday night 97-81, their Eastern Conference semi-final now 2 games to 1, Heat advantage.

The Celtics played it physical and clamped down on Miami's big three of Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh. But perhaps the biggest story of the night involved Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo.

Rondo briefly dislocated his elbow after being pulled to the ground while stealing the ball from Wade. Rondo went back to the locker room, got taped up put on an elbow pad and came back into the game, helping lead Boston to victory.

Props to Rondo, there are not a lot of guys in the high, priced, prima-donna world that is the NBA who would have done that. Rondo's status for the rest of the series however, remains in question.
