Not only was Jefferson unaware he’d recorded a career-high seven assists Monday during a win at Cleveland until he was told after the final buzzer, but Big Al said he went more than 12 hours before learning of an even larger statistical revelation.
The eight-year veteran recorded game-highs in points (25), rebounds (13) and assists against the Cavaliers. It marked only the fourth time in the 38-year history of the Jazz a player topped all three key categories during a game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Jefferson joined franchise legends Pete Maravich and Karl Malone, who accomplished it twice, as well as former box-score filler Andrei Kirilenko.
Some rare company. I'd say it has more to do with the sorry state of the Jazz's pg situation than anything though.
