Rajon Rondo is in his customary spot among the NBA's assist leaders, and his increased scoring ability has made him even more of a threat.
He'll look to help the Boston Celtics earn a fifth victory in their last six games Wednesday night against the visiting Utah Jazz, who are coming off their first road win.
Rondo leads the league with 12.9 assists per game after finishing with 20 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists in Monday's 101-95 victory at Chicago. He averaged an NBA-best 11.7 assists last season and finished second to Steve Nash at 11.2 per game in 2010-11.
Monday marked Rondo's 31st straight game with at least 10 assists, giving him the league's longest streak since John Stockton did it in 37 in a row from Feb. 27-Nov. 29, 1989.
"We played pretty well offensively,'' said Rondo, who overcame a season-worst five turnovers. "We took pretty good care of the ball. We got out on the break, kept it simple offensively.''
