Rajon Rondo does things on the court many dream of. He will never win a 3-point contest or run a kids basketball camp on how to shoot correctly, but the man is fun to watch. His recent achievements are historic. Rondo has his eye on breaking Magic Johnson’s NBA record for consecutive regular-season games with double-digit assists. Johnson respectively had 46 games in row followed by John Stockton with 37. Rondo is currently at 34. He’s had some close calls including Sunday’s game where barely dished out 10 assists, mostly because of rookie Jared Sullinger and his 4th quarter outburst of 14 points. The Celtics are trying to find themselves and the Eastern conference is still very unpredictable. To check their odds it’s good to use NBA betting at Top Bet (click here for more information). But with everything going on even coach Doc Rivers is on board with Rondo chasing the record. Here is his quote from ESPN: “Why not? You guys keep talking about it, so I figured I’d give him a shot at it,” Rivers said of intentionally gunning to extend Rondo’s streak. “It’s funny, the harder they tried, the worse we got at that. What did it come down to — what, 50 seconds or something? Jared made two jumpers. I think Jared gave him it, so that was good. When I called the timeout I said, ‘Guys, we’re going to lose the game, by the way. Let’s not play crazy, but if we can get him two more, let’s do it. If not, that’s it.’ First time we’ve done that.” Will he break the streak? it’s going to be close? But whether he does or not the important thing is the Celtics start to find their groove and put together a few win streaks. If he does indeed break the record it definitely won’t hurt his chances of moving up in the MVP race for this season.
