For those who like watching records fall or just enjoy following stats, their eyes are surely following the box scores of Rajon Rondo as he approaches the all-time record for consecutive games with 10 or more assists.
Rondo logged 15 assists against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, giving him 35 games in a row with double-digit dimes, just two behind John Stockton for second and 11 behind Magic Johnson for the record. The streak is impressive, but the Celtics lost to the Spurs 112-100. Surely Rondo is aware of his individual accomplishments, but it’s clear the team is more important.
"We lost so it's kind of irrelevant, really," Rondo said. "It's all about winning and we lost, so individual numbers don't matter."
The Celtics are sitting at 6-6 on the year, definitely below where they’d like to be, so the number one priority for Rondo and his teammates has to be to get the whole team back on track, not just focus on the consolation pr...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The fine folks at Dime Magazine sent me this video of their interview with Rajon Rondo as he talks sneakers. If it looks like Rondo has a new pair of kicks on almost every game it's because he does. He says he wears his shoes a max of two games (and then gives them to fans).
While you are digesting your Thanksgiving turkey, enjoy some of the bright spots of the game yesterday. Rajon Rondo dropped 22 points and 15 assists and almost brought the Celtics back, as the Celtics lost 112-102.

Saying "best win of the season" is cliche. But so far, this was absolutely the best win of the season. The Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, in a game that was hardly in doubt in the final quarter. The Celtics were led by Paul Pierce who was absolutely on fire, putting up 27 points on 8-16 shooting, and of course...

Sharp passes aren’t the only things Celtics players Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger were dishing out this Thanksgiving. The pair made their way to the Jordan Boys & Girls Club in Chelsea, Mass., to celebrate a holiday treat. The Boston Celtics’ charity, the Shamrock Foundation, made a gift of musical resources to the local children. Rondo and Sullinger jumped right in and...

Rajon Rondo resumes his spectacular point guard play recording his 35th consecutive game with 10 or more assists–two shy of John Stockton and 11 shy of Magic Johnson for the NBA all-time assist record. Aside from Rondo’s quest, the Celtics struggle to gain momentum early in the 2012-13 season losing back-to-back contests to the Detroit Pistons...

I just got back from an 8-hour drive this Saturday with only one thing on my mind…except for a couple X-rated things. I just wanted to sit on my couch, watch the Celtics play the not so exciting Raptors. Why would I be so enthralled over one lousy regular season game? The answer has two words. RAJON RONDOOOOOOO. Man, I haven’t been so excited over a player on the Celtics since...

This just in: the Spurs are REALLY good. Between their incredible chemistry and remarkable passing, it was just too much for the Celtics to handle. Whether it was the FIFTY EIGHT points inside the paint or the 8-of-16 shooting from downtown, the Spurs just showed the Celtics what a title contender looks like a 112-100 loss. Thiago Splitter led the way with 23 points on 9-of -11...
The Celtics dropped their second game in a row as they lost to the Spurs 112-100. They completely forgot how to play defense and how to rebound in this game. They allowed the Spurs to shoot 58.4%, which is the highest field goal percentage they have allowed since 2000. They also allowed the Spurs to score 58 points in the paint and allowed them to get to the basket at will. ...
