Imagine how many more assists he would get if we had an athletic big he could run the pick and roll with (I.E. Josh Smith). KG is too old to get up there, Wilcox is the only guy that can get to it and he is struggling thus far just because I think he has conditioning issues thus far.

According to this, Magic JOhnson either had a 44 or 46 game streak:

Quote
Rondo may pass Stockton Wednesday, then tie Stockton on Friday. Just in case you haven't felt enough of the Rajon Rondo love going around Celtics Life lately, here's one more nugget of information for you: The C's point guard recorded 12 assists in Washington on Saturday night.  Dating back to March 11th of last spring, it marks the 27th consecutive regular season game Rondo has had 10 or more assists.  That ties him for the 4th longest such streak in NBA history. John Stockton actually twice posted 27 game double digit assist streaks, in 1990 and '91.  Stockton also has the 2nd and 3rd best streaks of this kind; 29 games in '92, and 37 straight in '89. The all-time record belongs to Magic Johnson in 1983-84.  Amazingly there are statistical bookkeeping discrepancies though, and it is unclear if Magic's streak was 44 or 46 games.  If Rondo starts getting close, I imagine the true number will come to light.

  What Rondo's done so far is probably more impressive than Magic's streak. The Celts made about 35 baskets a game last year, the Lakers made 47 a game in 83-84.

Yea really, I thought that was it. Needed 2 assists with 50 seconds left. Led the team in scoring, rebounds and assists, one rebound short of a triple double too. Solid all around game.

5 steals and 1 rebound away from a quadruple double.

rondo once again leads the league in assists per game. (13.3)

cp3 is 2nd place with 10.3.

Rondo by a landslide. And if one person in the league could get the quadruple double, rondo would be the guy (other than James)

While I do agree with you, last season didn't John Wall have a game that was just shy of a quadruple double? If I remember right he had a triple double plus 7 in another category.

I think this season, too, I remember there being a close one (maybe it was Kemba Walker?) where whoever the player was had like 20 something points then 7-8-7 in assists, rebounds, steals.

On another note, last night was Rondo's 31st consecutive regular season game with 10+ assists. 6 more to tie, and 7 to beat, John Stockton's career record of 37. Magic Johnson is sitting at 44-46.

I think this is a little overstated. Don't think Rondo would necessarily get more assists with J Smith than KG or Bass. Rondo gets tons of assists with the pick and pop with those guys

He knew it when he got that 10th assist last night.  Big air fist pump.

I thought the streak was done.  Great finish for Rondo and solid win for the C's.

This scared me a bit down the stretch.  I was probably just projecting, but I got the feeling that Rondo was trying really hard to get those assists...to the point that he didn't necessarily have the idea of scoring at any cost in mind.  That can be a bit dangerous.
