2,215

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo made his season debut on Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers, and it didn’t take him long to use his trademark behind-the-back fake driving to the basket.

The new team captain used the move to get around Lakers forward Pau Gasol for his first points of the year. He also scored on the Celtics’ next possession off a steal by Jared Sullinger. Rondo took the ball around halfcourt and dribbled all the way to the hoop, while showing some impressive quickness coming off a lengthy recovery from ACL surgery.

Check out Rondo’s first two baskets of the season in the video below.
