ONLY OTHER PLAYER WITH 50 AST IN 1ST 3 GAMES OF SEASON:
J. STOCKTON, 1989-90
In 89-90 Stockton ended up averaging 14.5 assists per game. If Rondo can keep this up it would be phenomenal. But Rondo has to limit the turnovers, and he knows this. “I probably played the worst half of basketball i’ve played since being a Celtic…”, said Rondo on the turnovers. Rajon sometimes needs to be more aggressive with scoring the basketball, there are times when the defense plays him to pass and he still tries to dump it off. But on a night like this beggars can’t be choosers. 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 24 assists, that’s not the type of stat-line you can expect every night… but it sure is the type of stat-line he’s aiming for.
