Video: Rajon Rondo hits Marc Gasol in the crotch with the ball
In a match-up between recently traded Celtics, Rajon Rondo's Dallas Mavericks defeated Jeff Green's Memphis Grizzlies on Monday by a margin of 103-95.
Rondo's stat line was pretty drab: Rajon had 6 points, 1 assist, 3 rebounds, and 2 turnovers in 26 minutes, but he did manage to have a memorable moment when he nailed Marc Gasol in the nuts with the ball. As the ball was going out of bounds, Rondo attempted to make sure Dallas kept control of the ball by deflecting it off of Gasol. Unfortunately for Gasol, the ball hit him in the crotch before going out of bounds. Tyson Chandler seemed pretty stoked about it though, as witnessed from his fist pumping in this alternate view from cjzero:
Jeff Green played 32 minutes off the bench for Memphis, scoring 11 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists.
