The 6-foot-1 Rajon Rondo forced a jump ball against 6-foot-10 Mitch McGary, a tough proposition for the Mavericks point guard.

So Rondo got clever, not jumping with McGary and instead peeling off to snag McGary’s tip.

How many Mavericks were in on this play?

Amar’e Stoudemire and Charlie Villanueva both lined up next to Enes Kanter, leaving Dion Waiters open. That all but assured the tip would go to Waiters, so Rondo knew where to go.
