He has 198 assists this season, more than Isaiah Thomas, Goran Dragic, Kemba Walker and Kyrie Irving, among others.

Antetokounmpo is creating 14.1 points per game off assists, more than Stephen Curry, Mike Conley and the Hornets’ Walker, to name a few.
The game started as Curry¡¯s breakout. The surprise wasn¡¯t ¡°when¡± so much as ¡°where.¡± His 17-point first quarter came with five baskets at the rim. With the Grizzlies selling out to stop Curry from range (even in a down season, teams guard Curry relatively the same), he used Memphis¡¯ energy against them in a bit of basketball jiu-jitsu. Klay Thompson¡¯s buzzer-beater at the half was illustrative. Durant moved the ball to Curry, who pump faked, drove and found Thompson at the last moment.
In the third quarter, Curry got loose from deep, raining four 3-pointers over the Grizzlies. A patient sequence ended in a Draymond Green shovel pass, followed by a splash. His next came after a long dribbling sequence when Marc Gasol didn¡¯t venture far out enough for the switch. The most impressive of the flurry came off a four-point play when he fired up a shot in transition, as Vince Carter flipped him like a tackling dummy.
Andrew Shaw Jersey This was an embarrassing end for a scrutinized team, reminiscent not only of their Christmas Day issues, but also of a super team from the recent past. This looked like shades of the 2010-2011 Miami Heat. In the highest leverage moments, Golden State looked uneasy with who should lead and how it should happen. There is time to addressing these issues, but as Green indicated, if the Warriors are to fulfill their promise, they had better get moving when it matters.
