A little trivia for you. Who is arguably the best power forward in the history of the league? And on which team does he play?

Getting more assists than baskets is a familiar situation for the Sun point guard. Against Oklahoma City on the 23rd, Nash went 10-17 from the field with 12 assists. Two nights earlier, the Santa Clara grad finished 7-13 against the Cavs with 10 assists. Nash dished out 15 assists versus the Wizards going 6-12.
