Suns’ Chris Paul matches wild NBA record not seen in 36 years

Chris Paul, Suns

Phoenix Suns star Chris Paul has been one of the most efficient facilitators in the league for more than a decade now and continues to put up impressive and historic numbers as the Suns’ floor general. If any of you need more proof that the “Point God” is one of the best point guards to ever play in the league then here’s one.

On Wednesday night against the Dallas Mavericks, Paul was at it again when he put his name in the history books for another immaculate game handling the basketball. Despite a poor shooting night, CP3 still managed to make an impact by logging his 46th career game with 10+ assists without a turnover. This, per StatMuse, now ties him with Mugsy Bogues for the highest total by any player since 1985.

In the 105-98 home win, the 36-year-old ended with just seven points, failing to knock down any of his six triples, but still had an effective game calling the shots for the Suns and tallied 14 assists without turning the ball over in 37 minutes of action. If that’s not impressive then I don’t know what is.

Despite being ringless in 17 seasons in the league, CP3 has been slowly climbing up the ladder as one of the most elite court generals to ever play in the NBA. Record after record, the 11-time All-Star has been nothing short of incredible, regardless of the jersey he puts on. Just like last season, Paul is once again making sure that his Suns are in the running for another top spot in the West.
