Steve Nash passes Magic Johnson to move into fourth in all-time assists (VIDEO)

Feb 21, 2013, 11:14 AM EST

It was a busy night for the Lakers on Wednesday. L.A. started things off by honoring their late owner Jerry Buss, then finished things by rolling to an easy win over the Celtics.

In between, Steve Nash made history.

With his fourth and fifth assists of the night, Nash tied and then passed Magic Johnson to move into fourth place on the all-time list of assists leaders.

Next up is Mark Jackson, who sits in third place 190 assists ahead of Nash.

If Nash achieves his average of 7.4 assists per game through the rest of the season, he’ll own sole possession of third before the year is finished.

    It was a true pleasure being able to watch Nash dish out dimes during his time here in PHX. Easily one of the greatest PG’s of all time. Congratulations, one hell of an achievement.
