Denver Nuggets All-Star Nikola Jokic accomplished yet another remarkable feat Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers, becoming the fastest center in NBA history to reach 3,500 assists.
With 7:28 left in the first quarter, Jokic found Bruce Brown for two points and assist No. 3,500.
According to Basketball Reference, Jokic is the eighth center to surpass 3,500 assists and the fastest, topping Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain by a substantial amount. It took Jokic only 552 games to reach the milestone, as opposed to 777 games for Chamberlain.
Jokic’s elite passing skills were on full display early on Friday night. He recorded assist No. 3,499 with a sweet dish through a double team to a slashing Aaron Gordon, who slammed down a two-handed dunk.
