Jokic surpassed NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain becoming the center with the most 10-assist games (81) in the history of the league, per ESPN’s Stats and Info.

Jokic led the Nuggets to an 18-point comeback as Denver claimed a 119-109 victory over the Orlando Magic. A front-runner for the MVP award this year, Jokic finished the game with 17 points, 16 assists and nine rebounds.

As surpassing Chamberlain was not enough, the All-Star big dished 12 of his 16 assists in the second half of the game. Jokic is now tied for the second-most assists in any half this season.
