Rajon Rondo extended his own pursuit of a record and helped the Boston Celtics reverse some recent history.
Rondo had 20 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 101-95 win over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night. He stretched his streak of consecutive games with 10 or more assists to 31, the longest in the NBA since John Stockton had 37 straight from Feb. 27 to Nov. 29, 1989.
''We played pretty well offensively,'' Rondo said. ''Besides the turnovers I had, we took pretty good care of the ball. We got out on the break, kept it simple offensively.''
Rondo, who leads the NBA with an average of 12.9 assists per game, took advantage of Bulls point guard Nate Robinson by getting all of his scoring in the first three quarters to help the Celtics build a 12-point lead while shooting 56 percent.
''(Rondo) had an excellent game,'' Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. ''He is starting to get comfortable with the ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Rajon Rondo's been given an assist they missed in Milwaukee. That makes 11 for the game and thus a new NBA record 28 straight games of 11+.

BOSTON — Let’s be honest. Sports crowds do not always have a complete understanding of what is going on. They will loudly cheer a basket by the home team even when the shot was taken several seconds after a whistle was blown, or they will have a conniption when a batter slugs a high fly ball, thinking home run, when the can o’ corn has no chance of leaving the infield.
The Celtics have underachieved so far this season, but they were finally putting together a solid wire to wire effort Monday night in Chicago. However, as I watched a 13 point 4th quarter lead dwindle down to 3 with five minutes to go, the score was not what concerned me; Rajon Rondo had only 6 assists.
Amazingly in the final 3:12 of the game he assisted on each of the C’s final...
The Boston Celtics entered the season expected to contend with the Miami Heat (and possibly others) for the Eastern Conference title. They’re off to a 3-3 start, which isn’t bad, but certainly not impressive when you consider that two of the wins came against the Wizards. One of the main problems for the Celtics is their age. Kevin Garnett is 36 and Paul Pierce is 35, which...
Only 5 games into the season it is way to early to panic about this team or jump off the bandwagon. I said this at the beginning of the season we need to wait about 20 games to really judge this team and make a judgement to weather this team is going to make a title run. The good with this Celtics team in the first 2 weeks has to start at the top with the play of PG Rajon Rondo....

Kevin Garnett is still the heart and soul of the Boston Celtics defense
The Boston Celtics fell to 2-3 on the season after losing 106-100 to the Philadelphia 76ers in the Garden on Friday. The lost also dropped their home record to 1-2. The Celtics are struggling to find their chemistry on both sides of the ball, at an incredibly inconsistent rate. There are times when they are putting...

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: 20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting. He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line. A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular.
Defense: He played the passing lanes...
