Denver nuggets achieved a great victory by tracing the match against Orlando Magic and end up winning 119-109. One of the main reasons for the triumph was the presence of Nikola Jokic. The Serbian reached 81 career games with 10 or more assists, thereby surpassing the legendary Wilt Chamberlain., and he became the center that more times per game has left his teammates in shooting position.
The player, a strong MVP candidate, it took just 430 games to match and surpass Chamberlain, who had achieved the impressive record in more than 1000 games who played in the NBA with the 76ers and the Lakers.
Even in this list the next active pivot appears in 12th place: it is Marc Gasol and DeMarcus Cousins, who surpassed 10 assists in a total of 10 games. Perhaps this is why Denver managed to turn the game around Orlando, thanks to the pair between Jokic and Aaron Gordon, author of 24 points and 7 rebounds.
What’s more, Jokic is one of the ten players with the most assists in the last five years, with a total of 2,519, in a list headed by Russell Westbrook, James Harden and LeBron James. As if that were not enough, the Serbian also stands as an exalted passer. His records indicate that he is the second player who passes the most passes per game with 75.0 and creates 20.8 points through his assists.
