Antetokounmpo required only two assists to surpass the previous record of 3,272 assists held by Paul Pressey, which was achieved between 1982 and 1990, according to reports.

In addition to the assists record, Antetokounmpo currently holds the team's record for most blocks, triple-doubles, free throws made, free throws attempted, and minutes played.

He equaled Pressey's record at the start of the game when he provided Brook Lopez with an assist for a 3-pointer, and broke the record later in the first quarter when he passed to Jevon Carter for another 3-pointer.

However, Antetokounmpo's record-breaking achievement was dampened by his exit from the game with a sprained right wrist following an unsuccessful attempt to block a finger roll by Coby White.

He appeared to jam his wrist against the stanchion, causing him to leave the court in the second quarter while grimacing in pain.

Antetokounmpo was able to play for only nine minutes, during which he scored a season-low of two points, grabbed seven rebounds, and provided three assists.

Despite the injury, Antetokounmpo's remarkable career achievements include being a seven-time All-Star player and a two-time Kia MVP winner.
