I gotta say, even as a big Rondo apologist, this really impresses me. Any time you can put Rajon Rondo
in the same sentence as Bob Cousy, that's a good day for Rajon. When he's breaking assist records from the godfather of dimes, that's something special.

Rondo dished out a total of 219 assists in the month of March, shattering Bob Cousy's 56-year-old record after recording 210 assists in January 1956, according to ESPN Stats and Info. Rondo certainly benefited from having 17 games during the month in this condensed season, but he still averaged 12.9 assists per game for the month. Only twice during March did Rondo fail to reach double digits in assists (8 over 26 minutes in a lopsided loss to Philadelphia on March 7 and 5 over 26 minutes in a win over Portland).
Well done Rajon. Keep it up.
