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+.

Sean Grande has tweeted that they found a previously unreported assist for Rondo in the game against the Bucks. He was previously recorded as having 10 assists in the game and that left him tied with John Stockton with 27 straight games with 11 or more assists. With the assist added for the Bucks game, that moves Rondo into the record books in sole possession of first place with 28 games with 11 or more assists.
His streak of games with 10 or more assists remains intact at 31. It took until the final minute of the win over the Bulls to get his tenth, but he finished the game with 10 and that's what counts. He is in 3rd place with 31 games of 10 or more assists. John Stockton, who had a streak of 37 10+ assist games in 1989 is in second. Magic Johnson, with a streak of 44 10+ assist games between the 1983 and 1984 seasons is alone at the top of the list.
We at Celtics Green send our Congratulations to Rajon Rondo for his accomplishment!!!

Rajon Rondo will not play tonight for the #Celtics against the #Nets and Leandro Barbosa will start in his place.

Rondo's ankle isn't serious, but they are going to be very cautious with him because he is so important to the team. No need to push him and risk further injury this early in the season.

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....

The Celtics are on fire right now. With three consecutive wins over three good teams, the C's are flying high at 5-3. They beat the Jazz yesterday, and are now in the second game of a rare two-games-in-two-days stretch. Tonight, they will head to Brooklyn to play their first game at the Nets' new arena, the Barclays Center. With that in mind, here are five things that the...
Did you hear that collective sigh of relief? That was Celtic nation. Jeff Green has all the tools and capabilities to do good and even great things. This dunk was just straight up dirty by Green. I think Al Jefferson may have filed a restraining order after it. It was nice to finally see a mean side of Jeff Green. Earlier during the week we heard he was too soft and nice...
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...
