The play where Rajon Rondo may have suffered his season-ending ACL injury (VIDEO)

Jan 27, 2013, 5:01 PM EST

We’re not absolutely certain that this is the play where Rajon Rondo tore his ACL, but at the moment it seems to be the leading candidate.

The fine folks over at Celtics Hub did the research, and found this play from Boston’s double-overtime loss in Atlanta, where Rondo appears to come down awkwardly after taking a jumper midway through the second overtime session.

An MRI taken Sunday confirmed the ACL tear, which will sideline Rondo for the rest of the season.

The Celtics beat the Heat in double-overtime on Sunday without Rondo by a final of 100-98.

    It’ll have the same impact for the Celts as Derrick Rose’s injury for the Bulls. Ainge should throw in the towel an start rebuilding, this group has no chance whatsoever without Rondo. It’s over.

      What giant impact has Rose’s injury had with the Bulls? They are currently the #3 seed sitting 2 games back from the Heat. I’m not saying that Rondo’s injury will not hurt the Celtics badly, I’m just saying that you must not follow basketball.

        He’s referring to the impact it had on the Bulls in the playoffs last year. When they lost the rest of their games.

      Was that a free ride that he had with a triple double today and key shot towards the end of the game?

      Yes. But they wouldn’t in a 7 game series without Rondo.
