Scott Skiles Dishes Out a Record 30 Assists

At the end of 1990 Scott Skiles and the Orlando Magic took advantage of Paul Westhead’s frantic (and misfiring) Denver offense to run a fast-break clinic, winning a shootout 155-116. That amazing score was not why the game is remembered today, however, as Orlando’s tough point guard tallied a NBA-record 30 assists, a mark that still stands today. The Orlando Sentinel produced a 25th-anniversary tribute to that record-setting day.
