1. Rondo Dunk: Kings fans are starting to become accustomed to Rajon Rondo doing eye-opening plays, but Thursday night in the fourth quarter against the Knicks he did something that maybe he himself didn’t even expect.
With the Kings leading 91-88 with about three minutes left in the game, Rondo went around a screen from DeMarcus Cousins to get to the baseline and attack the rim with a one-handed slam (video here). After the game, Rondo even noted that it was probably years ago where he remembered dunking in a game.
This might have not been the best play based off level of skill, but when you consider the elements of Rondo rarely dunking, Quincy Acy celebrating by pretending to faint from the bench, and Chris Webber’s chanting of “RONDOOOOOOO!” right before the commercial break, it was one heck of a moment for Kings fans to witness.
