*After 4 games, the Celtics are averaging 17.8 fastbreak points per game, which ranks 3rd in the NBA. In the New Big Three Era, the Celtics have never finished in the top 10 in fastbreak points. In addition, the Celtics impressively lead the league in fastbreak efficiency with 2.367 points per fastbreak possession.
*Rondo has registered more than 10 assists in 26 straight games, which is 1 game shy of the longest streak in NBA history by John Stockton in 1990-91 (Via ESPN Stats & Info). However, since most assist records have only been recorded well since 1985-86, so we are not sure that Stockton’s is the best streak of this kind.
*The Celtics began the New Big Three Era with 12 wins in their first 14 games against the 76ers. However, the 76ers have won 3 of the last 5 regular season meetings.
*After leading the league in Team Assists per FGM in 2011-12, the Celtics already find themselves near the top of the league in the statistic again in 5th place at .676 … 1st place: Bulls (.691).
