HOUSTON -- Steve Nash further cemented his standing as one of the best point guards of all time on Tuesday night.

The Victoria native earned his 10,000th career assist in the Los Angeles Lakers' 125-112 loss to the Houston Rockets.

Nash found Antawn Jamison on a pick-and-roll with seconds left in the first half to reach the milestone.

He's only the fifth player to hit the mark, joining John Stockton, Jason Kidd, Mark Jackson, and Magic Johnson.

Nash now has a total of 10,005 assists over his 17-year NBA career.

"I have to step outside of this frustration and say congrats to (at)SteveNash 10,000. Amazing accomplishment Wish we could have gotten u theW," tweeted teammate Kobe Bryant after the game.
