Chris Paul racks up 8,000th career assist with dish to Mo Speights for dunk (VIDEO)


It is only fitting that Chris Paul reached an assist milestone on a pick-and-roll.

CP3 had Mo Speights come back and set a second pick, and when 3/5ths of the Heat defense focused on Paul he slid a bounce pass to Speights, who threw it down for two. Paul is 10th on the NBA all-time assist chart. At some point next season he should pass Andre Miller, and he will move farther up that list before it’s all over. (John Stockton tops the list with 15,806. Not sure if anyone ever catches him.)

Paul was doing much more than that to torture the Heat defenders.
