Steve Nash passes for his 10,000th assist in another Lakers loss
Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash passes for his 10,000th assist of his career during his team’s loss to the Houston Rockets by the score of 125-112 Tuesday night. The feat has only been achieved by four other players in NBA history (Mark Jackson, Magic Johnson, Jason Kidd and John Stockton), and without question is one of Nash’s most remarkable individual accomplishments.
Even though Steve Nash passes the 10,000 assist mark, it comes during a very frustrating time for his team.
Steve Nash, who is 38 years of age, admitted after the game that he has dangerously considered that Los Angeles, regardless of all the preseason hype and championship desires surrounding the team, may miss out on the playoffs this NBA season.
The Los Angeles Lakes record is currently 15-19, and they are in 11th place in the Western Conference.
