SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Joe Ingles passed Pistol Pete Maravich for 7th in career assists in Utah Jazz history in the first quarter against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Entering the game against the Sixers, Joe Ingles needed one assist to pass Pistol Pete Maravich on the Jazz career assists and it happened early in the game. The assist came in the way that many of his career assists came and that was in the pick and roll.

Rudy Gobert set a screen for Ingles. As the Australian went around the screen, Gobert cut. Ingles had the option to keep the ball or dish off to Gobert. He opted to throw a quick under-hand pass to the slashing Frenchman, who finished with a right-handed dunk.

Ingles has been climbing up the record books recently with the Jazz. On January 29, 2021, Ingles passed John Stockton for the most three-pointers made in a career in franchise history.

Then he picked up his 1,845th assist to pass Pete Maravich. Here is the current career assist leaders in Utah Jazz history:

  1. John Stockton – 15,806
  2. Karl Malone – 5,085
  3. Rickey Green – 4,159
  4. Deron Williams – 4,003
  5. Andrei Kirilenko – 1,919
  6. Jeff Hornacek – 1,895
  7. Joe Ingles – 1,845
  8. Pete Maravich – 1,844
  9. Gordon Hayward – 1,762
  10. Adrian Dantley – 1,702

This game against the Sixers wrapped up a 4-game homestand. The Jazz will hit the road for a two-game series in Los Angeles against the Clippers beginning on Wednesday, February 17 and Friday, February 19. Both games will tip-off at 8 p.m. MST on AT&T SportsNet.
