Celtics by the Numbers: Rondo more records ahead

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 26, 2012 at 7:15 AM


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.

Me neither.
I think it's almost impossible not knowing about it.

Nine game is still a long way to go.
But it would be not just great, but amazing, unbelievable.
And doc is right, just by the way he plays he should get 10 assist every night!!
He is so beautiful to watch!! I just finished the other day a little video about Rondo with the song "Hall of fame" because even before knowing the title of the song, the elengance of the music at the beginning reminded me of Rondo.

I think Rondo should be averaging at least 15 assists per game. Just look at the way defenses react to him. They panic when he makes a move. I don't think Rondo's teammates are taking full advantage of this.

I wish they'd all act more like Wilcox. Just know that Rondo is always looking for you, no matter what he is doing, so get yourself into a good position to score.

I really like that too!! Wilcox is great!! Even when he talks, he always says that you have to be ready because Rondo is going to find you!!

The thing is, a lot of it seems haphazard. Catch as catch can. Wilcox and KG seem to really get it. Play off Rondo. He draws the defense, you find the open spot. I feel like they could all do this in a more thought out way. They could find new wrinkles all the time.

But too, to really make it work, Rondo has to keep scoring. I think he forgets sometimes that part of what keeps defenses reacting to him with a kind of panic is him being a threat to score.

But he is playing it off a bit so he doesn't come off too much as favoring Rondo. Coaches with great players always have this struggle. How do you favor your great player, without being so obvious about it that it wrecks the emotional balance of the team?
