NBA Note - New Orleans Pelicans Rondo, Rajon

Dec 28, 2017 - 9:42 AM PG Rajon Rondo had a career-high 25 assists on Wednesday against Brooklyn. "To get 25 is pretty incredible," said Anthony Davis, whose 33-point, 11-rebound and season-high, six-block night was stage left to Rondo's center-stage performance. Rondo was the catalyst for the Pelicans setting a franchise record of 40 assists on 48 made field goals. His 25 assists were one more than his previous career high of 24, set in 2010 when he played for the Boston Celtics. Rondo also is one of only four NBA players -- Isiah Thomas, Magic Johnson and John Stockton are the others -- to have multiple games of at least 23 assists in a game. "We had (48) baskets with 40 assists, so that speaks for itself," Rondo said. "It wasn't just me. It was our team, a collective effort. The ball was hopping and we were making plays for each other."
