Magic sheds a tear after breaking the NBA's career assist record on April 15, 1991, at the Forum. His ninth assist that night against the Dallas Mavericks gave him 9,888, surpassing Oscar Robertson. The record assist came on a 17-foot shot by Terry Teagle. Magic had 19 assists in the game, but also 11 turnovers. "I've never been so nervous before a game," he said afterward. "Before the game. In the game. I don't think I've been this nervous since I played my first game at San Diego and tripped over my warmups."
