Russell Westbrook climbed to the ninth place on the NBA all-time assist list as he passed Isiah Thomas after making 3 assists in the Clippers’ win over the Knicks.

His teammate Paul George was asked about the former league MVP who reached the milestone. PG praised Westbrook, saying that he is a unique player.

“Hall of Famer, one of the best point guards ever,” George said about Russ. “Not one player you could say that Russ is comparable to, he’s kind of made his own lane and been special in that lane. He’s up there with the greats. He’s in the conversation with the best to ever do it. Give credit where credit due.”
