The enigmatic point guard finished with 25 points on 10 of 18 shooting, including the go ahead bucket with two seconds remaining in regulation and the game-winner with time expiring in the second and final overtime.

Some intrepid NBA sleuths unearthed a clip of Rondo trying to kick Deron Williams' foot with 2:25 remaining in the first overtime.
