A list of the league’s strongest relationships takes a look at the top assist combinations in the current season.
Leading the way are James Harden and Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers, who totaled 167 assists as of Tuesday.
Tyrese Haliburton of the Indiana Pacers has found Buddy Hield 118 times this season, while Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets has dished it out to Aaron Gordon on 114 instances.
From Jalen Brunson to Julius Randle, Marcus Smart to Jaylen Brown, Jrue Holiday to Brook Lopez, and Trae Young to John Collins, the league has a number of astonishing assist pairings right now.
It’s no surprise that Harden and Embiid are finding more wins than ever before.
When Harden was added to the 76ers, some people worried that he wouldn’t fit in well and would lack the drive needed to get the team deep into the playoffs.
Harden swore that wouldn’t be the case and promised great things for himself and his squad.
True to his word, Harden has been wonderful this year.
And he’s doing incredible things with his assists, currently leading the NBA with 10.8 per game.
If a team wants to reach the playoffs and the Finals, they need more than just one leader.
They need at least two people who work like magic together.
This list of the league’s best partnerships shows how true that is.NEXT: James Harden Makes A Big Move For His Future
