To get past John Stockton, Westbrook would have to nearly double his current streak and finish with 13 in a row. Possible? Yes. Easy? Definitely not. The Wizards are definitely hoping Russ can add another great night of assist to their final game of the season, as their showdown with the Charlotte Hornets could take them to eighth place.
The degree of difficulty in chasing that record is a testament to how great the Utah Jazz icon was, John stockton. Just as it seems that no one would outgrow Russell westbrook In the most triple-doubles in history, John Stockton’s all-time attendance record will likely stand the test of time in the history of the NBA.
