Rajon Rondo did what he had to do. It was that simple, really.

When the Magic left Boston's point guard open to take shots, he had to take them, and he had to make them for the Celtics to win. He did, and they did.

"He made shots," Brad Stevens said after the game of Rondo. "They went under the ball screens and almost dared him to make shots and he has to make those. He's a very good pull up shooter."

Stevens admitted that it's taken time for Rondo to get comfortable on the floor -- and comfortable with his jump shot, more specifically -- but the Celtics coach hinted at the fact that Rondo's performance on Sunday could be a sign of things to come when it comes to that jumper.

"Hopefully," Stevens said, "it's back for good."
