Kidd moves past Isiah Thomas for 5th Place on the all-time assist ladder
Noted. With the Boston Celtics (30-4) win against the New Jersey Nets (18-18) last night, they have matched their best start ever.
But their was other action aside from the Celtics win yesterday.
The Associated Press shared that Jason Kidd's assist on a Vincent Lamar Carter jumper with 8:07 remaining in the third was the 9,062 of his career, moving him past Isiah Thomas into fifth place on the all-time list with 9,065. Kidd now needs 823 assists to surpass the great Oscar Robertson.
The Celtics are also one of two teams that Kidd has yet to record a triple-double against. He missed it by a hair last night by one assist (Kidd's stat line: 11 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists).
The other team?
The New Jersey Nets.
