With a floating pass over the top of the Washington Mystics’ defense in last night’s first quarter, Sue Bird moved into the number one spot on the WNBA’s all-time assists list.

Bird wrapped up last night’s game, a 110-106 loss, with a season-high 13 dimes, giving her a career total of 2,610. She leapfrogged the legendary Ticha Penicheiro, who finished her 15-year-career with 2,599 helpers.

Bird, also in her 15th season, is currently averaging a career-best 6.6 assists per game. Watch the record-setting dime above.
