On This Date in NBA History: April 24, John Stockton Recorded 21 Assists


1992 – In a 115-97 Utah Jazz victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, John Stockton dished out a game-high 21 assists. The Clippers had 22 assists as a team in that game. Stockton is one of three players to record at least 20 assists in a playoff game since 1992. He is the only player of those three to do it twice.

Stockton’s 1,839 career postseason assists are the second-most all-time. Only Magic Johnson has more in NBA history. However, when combining regular season and playoff assists, Stockton has the most all-time. He played 182 postseason games, but unfortunately never was a part of a championship team.
