Doc Rivers called it "coach's porn," but whatever you call it, superior ball movement, sparked by Rajon Rondo, gave the Celtics an inspiring win over the Spurs:

--RONDO GETS THE CELTICS MOVING VS. SPURS--
If Boston's offense was in a funk, it broke out in a big way Thursday night in San Antonio. The Celtics shot a blistering 61.9 percent in the second half, connecting on 26 of 42 shots while racing away for a 107-97 triumph over the Spurs. "Hell, I'm going to say it, and I probably shouldn't, but [the players know], I call it coach's porn," joked Rivers, the insinuation that nothing gets a hoops coach more excited than seeing fundamental ball movement leading to open looks.
