Paul Pierce hears news of Rajon Rondo's torn ACL during postgame interview (Video)
Rondo was already sitting out for Sunday's game against the Heat, but the news about his ACL was not made public before the game. Apparently the news was not even revealed to Rondo's teammates, who would not hear the news until after the game was over, leading to the unusual moment between Burke and Pierce.
The loss of Rondo overshadows a hard-fought win by the Celtics over their conference rivals, and will certainly be a major hurdle for the Celtics to overcome for the rest of the season.
