The way Rajon Rondo has been creating for his teammates, a structured offense has been optional for the Boston Celtics.
Rondo will try to extend his streak of consecutive games with double-digit assists to 34 as the Celtics play for the fourth time in five days Sunday at the struggling Detroit Pistons.
After missing the team's loss to Brooklyn on Thursday because of a sprained right ankle, Rondo showed no ill effects Saturday, dishing out 20 assists in 32 minutes to lead Boston (6-4) to its biggest win of the season - 107-89 over Toronto.
Until they did it at Philadelphia to emphatically capture the season’s first win, the Pistons hadn’t held an opponent under 30 percent shooting since April 11, 2008.
Those Pistons represented the guts of the group that competed in six straight conference finals. Ben Wallace was gone, but their starting lineup that night consisted of Rasheed Wallace, Antonio McDyess, Tayshaun Prince, Chancey Billups and Tayshaun Prince.
