2023-24 OKC Thunder break franchise record for most 30-plus assist games in season

The Oklahoma City Thunder made franchise history in their 128-120 win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday.

After racking up 36 assists on 51 made shots, the 2023-24 Thunder own the franchise record for most 30-plus assists games in a season with 12. OKC managed to do that in 36 games.

The previous record holders were the 2022-23 and 2018-19 Thunder, who totaled 11 games with 30-plus assists in their 82 contests.

This speaks volumes to how well the offensive machine Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault has is running right now. Led by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Chet Holmgren and Jalen Williams, OKC is playing a successful style of offense.

It also likely speaks about the evolution of basketball and how high-scoring games have become the norm. That shouldn’t take away from what Daigneault and the Thunder have accomplished so far this season.
