Ever the competitor, Rondo contributed in any way he could, including doing whatever this was to Celtics wing Jae Crowder.

Without Rondo, who averaged 11.5 points, 10 assists, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.5 steals per game through two contests, Boston easily disposed of the Bulls on Friday night, 104-87, behind a ballanced scoring effort—four Celtics scored 15 or more points.
After the game, Rondo, rocking the same outfit teammate Dwyane Wade wore on the sidelines earlier this season, said he was just stretching.
"When you tear an ACL, your leg gets stiff every once in awhile. I stretch my leg out, I always do that throughout the game," Rondo said before finally giving way to a smirk. "It's just, he's so deep into our bench, you know, it looked like whatever may happen."
