Chicago Bulls guard Rajon Rondo didn’t suit up for Game 3 against the Boston Celtics due to a fractured right thumb that will keep him out indefinitely.
That didn’t stop the first-year Bull from making a, er, contribution(?) on Friday. After Celtics forward Jae Crowder sunk a bucket near the baseline, he trotted back the other way, only to find a roadblock in his path.
Rondo subtly stuck out his leg in an apparent attempt to trip Crowder.

The injured Bulls guard, who spent a fair share of his time in Boston, was pivotal in Game 1 and 2, both of which resulted in wins. He posted a double-double in Game 2 en route to Chicago taking an early 2-0 lead in the series.
