Rajon Rondo earned his second NBA title on Sunday (first with the Celtics) and made a tangible impact in Game 6 with 19 points on an impressive 8-of-11 shooting.
Rondo knew that he didn't want this series to go to a decisive Game 7 and he made sure that the Lakers were able to ride a crazy 28-point first-half lead to victory. Rondo, who had been a quiet presence on the bench for most of the playoffs, really stepped up when his team needed him most in this series, highlighting how his high basketball I.Q. and his championship experience can and did become a difference-maker for the team.
