Rondo already beaten Stockton for most games in a row with 11 or more assists in a game. Rondo beat the streak when he recorded 28 games in a row. Sunday Rondo tied Stockton with 37 games in a row with 10 or more assists. Rondo has Magic on his radar, and he's got another 9 games left to nail that record. Does Rondo have any other records to address?
Well he's currently at 13.5 or so assists per game on the season. The record for highest average in a season is 14.5 by Stockton. Can Rondo capture that average this season? Does he have what it takes for that? I think he's got a large chance.
"Listen, I want him to get the record, it’d be great. But I can tell you, when you just said [he tied Stockton], I actually thought he had already passed him," Rivers said. "That tells you how much I’m paying attention to that. It is a record out there, and he should go after it. But he should just keep playing. Rondo should get 10 assists every night, he really should. Just by the way he plays. And that’s what he’s doing."
Is Doc playing a little dumb now? Doc fully knows where Rondo stands on the assist record. I don't buy that.
