Calathes continues to reach new heights in Greek basketball
Panathinaikos playmaker Nick Calathes continues to climb in the Greek Basket League record books after his double-double against helped him soar to new heights among assist leaders…
Nick Calathes’ double-double performance against Aris on Monday helped his side continue their perfect start to the season, but the performance also helped Calathes add to his illustrious career in the Greek game.
Calathes’ 10 assists helped the Greek international reach 1,025 assists in his Basket League career, surpassing Giorgos Sigalas (1,024) for fifth all-time along the way.
Calathes, who is now two assists away for 100 on the season, is now quickly gaining on Nikos Vetoulas (1,093) for fourth all-time and based on the 29-year-old’s pace of 7 assists-per-game could pass Vetoulas before the end of the regular season.
Even if Calathes catches Vetoulas for fourth, the Greek international will have a long way to go to chase all-time assists leader, Vassilis Spanoulis, for first all-time.
