Rajon Rondo spent the early part of this season stalking Magic Johnson‘s record of 46 straight games with double-digit assists. Rondo took the streak so seriously he allowed himself to be kept in the game into the final minute of a loss in Detroit just to notch that decisive 10th assist to keep his run alive. Rondo’s streak eventually ended at 37 games, which tied John Stockton for the second-longest streak behind Johnson. It was an achievement that spoke to Rondo’s abilities as a playmaker. It was also a record Johnson did not even know he had. “I knew it after ESPN ran it,” Johnson said, laughing, during a conference call Friday. “They were keeping the count on Rondo, and they had me up there as No. 1. I did not know they had that record.” Johnson, who is an analyst for ESPN, went on to say he never played for records — “I just played for the championship” — but he was not belittling Rondo’s feat. Johnson praised Rondo for bringing back the role of the classic, pass-first point guard
