Video: Wild end to Hawks win over Celtics

May 9, 2012, 8:05 AM EST

What an ending.

Boston was down one point with 10 seconds to go, all Atlanta had to do was get the ball in, hit their free throws and get out with a win. But Rajon Rondo steals an inbounds pass, then since they don’t have any timeouts, Boston goes directly into a play. Kevin Garnett comes out to set the high pick, it works the Hawks switch so Rondo is now covered by Al Horford… but it doesn’t go as planned. Hawks win.

Boston now heads home for a game Thursday night up 3-2 in the series.
