The Philadelphia 76ers are 25-16 so far this season and have gone 6-4 in their last ten games. Injuries have derailed their season at times, but their star players are now all back on the court. Philly came out sloppy last night and were not able to take advantage of a struggling Oklahoma City Thunder team. In the 133-114 loss, Sixers guard James Harden shattered a team record that was previously held by Wilt Chamberlain and Maurice Cheeks. 

Harden finished the game last night with a 24/15/6 stat line while also breaking the 76ers record for most 15+ assist games in a single season. He’s a three-time scoring champ that has changed his game later in his career and that’s why he leads the Sixers with (11.2) assists per game in 2022-23.

NBA betting sites have the 76ers at (+1600) to win the Finals this season.

James Harden breaks 76ers record for most 15+ assist games in a single-season

The ten-time all-star is averaging (12.5) assists per game over his last ten and has been a facilitator for the Sixers all season. He doesn’t have as many games played as some of the other stars in the league and that’s why he does not qualify to lead the league in assists at the moment. Tyrese Haliburton is currently averaging (10.2) assists per game for the Indiana Pacers.

Philly previously had two players who were tied for the most 15+ assists games in a single-season. Wilt Chamberlain did it in (1967-68) and Maurice Cheeks in (1987-88). The record is even more impressive as Harden has played in just 26 games this season. At this rate, he’s going to leave a record that will be quite hard to beat.

Harden has been dishing out assists all season long and tied the Sixers record for most assists in a game on 12/23/22. He a triple-double that game with a 20/11/21 stat line and tied once again Maurice Cheeks for another 76ers team record.
