Watch: Rajon Rondo 'resuscitated' by Celtics teammates

Thursday February 6th, 2014


Brandon Bass may not be a doctor, but he does a damn fine job of playing one on TV.

When Celtics teammate Rajon Rondo spilled to the floor after a push-off from Philadelphia's Thaddeus Young on Wednesday, Bass was first on the scene. His first instinct was to reach to help up his teammate, but Rondo offered no response. Bass quickly checked for vitals, but nothing still. Immediately, he moved to resuscitate his fallen comrade using a handy, hand-held defibrillator.



Life saved, crisis averted.
