Rajon Rondo had a triple double in Boston's 88-86 win over the Hawks on Wednesday.
Rondo has finished with a double-double in 19 straight games, putting up 10 points, 20 assists and 10 rebounds in his most recent effort.
“I know he’s on a run,’’ Doc Rivers said. “I don’t even know what the run is. Honestly, I don’t even know what that [double-figure assist streak] means. I know it means he’s playing very well but I don’t need the numbers to tell me that.
“He’s playing extremely well, he’s just been spectacular. And that’s why we’re winning. It’s not just him, it’s everybody. But we need a locked-in effort from him every night and he’s doing that.’’
“You talk about KG [Kevin Garnett], Paul [Pierce], Ray [Allen], but this guy certainly is the head of the snake,’’ Atlanta coach Larry Drew said of Rondo before the game. “He has the ability to affect the game in a lot of different areas. And he’s gotten better and better.’’
