Rajon Rondo has never been a good shooter, but the guy sure knows how to pass the basketball. The veteran point guard put that on full display Wednesday night, when he scored just two points, but had 25 assists in the New Orleans Pelicans’ 128-113 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

That’s a career-high in assists for Rondo (topping 24 assists), a franchise record for the Pelicans, and it’s the most assists from an NBA player in a game since Jason Kidd had 25 assists in 1996.
