Andre Miller hits 7,000 career assists

Miller became the 14th player in NBA history with at least 7,000 assists during Portland’s 98-87 win over the Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena.

In 1998, Miller quarterbacked the University of Utah’s run to the NCAA championship game, where the Utes lost to Kentucky.

A year later, Cleveland selected Miller with the No. 8 pick in the NBA draft. He was taken after two other point guards, Steve Francis and Baron Davis, who went second and third, respectively.
