VIDEO: Rajon Rondo hits insane circus shot from behind the backboard
The Los Angeles Lakers had a field day against the Denver Nuggets on Friday, as they completely dominated the Nuggets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. Lakers veteran Rajon Rondo played a huge role for L.A. off the bench. His outstanding performance was pretty much encapsulated by an insane over the backboard layup in the fourth quarter.
Here’s a look at that crazy shot, which just goes to show how Rondo and the rest of the Lakers absolutely had it going on on Friday:

That was a really, really tough shot, and the fact that Rondo made it look so easy is truly impressive. The veteran finished the blowout win with seven points, one rebound, nine dimes, two steals, and zero turnovers in just 22 minutes of action.
The Lakers have drawn first blood in this series, and are now up 1-0.
