Jason Kidd is one of the greatest all-around players of all-time. He was known for his triple-doubles and is currently third on the list of all-time triple-doubles in the NBA. Kidd won his solitary NBA title in 2011 when he was part of the Dallas Mavericks team that defeated Miami Heat in the Finals.


The Mavericks hosted the Jazz for a game in 1996. Kidd had a very memorable game that night and scored 20 points and handed out 25 assists to help the home team hang on to win. Although he struggled to shoot that night, he used his passing ability to help the team.

This was a game that got decided in double overtime and Kidd ended up having more assists than the entire Jazz team, 25-23. The fact that Kidd had so many points and assists and the Mavericks won this only by 3 points and that too in over-time shows us how crucial his performance was that night.
