Wade entered Saturday night's 98-80 loss to Oklahoma City needing only four assists to match Hardaway with 2,867 in his career. He broke the record in spectacular fashion, with each of his first five assists of the game resulting in dunks for Miami.
Wade broke the record with 6:25 left in the third quarter, when he passed the ball to Jermaine O'Neal for a two-handed dunk. He finished with six assists on the night.
