Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo moved into 11th all-time on the playoff assists list on Thursday against the Houston Rockets.

Rondo had already passed up Detroit Pistons Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas, and now moves past Boston Celtics great Dennis Johnson.

Next up on the list is Michael Jordan, who has 1,022 career playoff assists.

Most of Rajon Rondo’s playoff assists came as a member of the Celtics. He averaged 9.2 assists in 92 playoff games with Boston, including 11.9 dimes per game during the 2011-12 season. The former All-Star also averaged 12.2 assists for the New Orleans Pelicans during the 2017-18 season.

As the numbers suggest, Rondo has been doing this for quite a long time.

It was something of an unknown what Rondo’s status was at the start of the playoffs. The veteran suffered a fractured thumb during one of the first days of camp in the Orlando “bubble,” sidelining him indefinitely.

Rondo was then supposed to make his playoff debut for the Lakers at some point during their first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers, but he missed the series after dealing with back spasms.

However, Rajon Rondo returned for the start of the Western Conference semifinals against the Rockets, and he has been a major difference-maker in each of the team’s wins.

The 34-year-old scored 10 points to go along with nine assists and five steals in Game 2, finishing the contest +28 in terms of plus-minus. Rondo then scored 21 points and multiple three-pointers in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s game as the Lakers took command in the final period.

Rondo has become a crucial member of the rotation, and he is continuing to make playoff history in the process.
