OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Dwyane Wade has become the Miami Heat's career leader in assists, breaking the record set by Tim Hardaway.
Wade entered Saturday night's game at Oklahoma City needing only four assists to match Hardaway with 2,867 in his career. He broke the record in spectacular fashion, with each of his first five assists of the game resulting in dunks for Miami.
Three of his first four assists were alley-oops that resulted in dunks for Michael Beasley, and the other was an alley-oop that Udonis Haslem finished with a jam.
Wade broke the record with 6:25 left in the third quarter, when he passed the ball to Jermaine O'Neal for a two-handed dunk.
