The Baskonia playmaker authored one of the most impressive performances in competiton history. 
History was made in northern Spain as Codi Miller-McIntyre broke the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague single-game record with 20 assists in Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz’s 94-80 victory over LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne on Thursday night. The Baskonia point guard also registered the fourth triple-double in EuroLeague history.

“I’m excited we got the win. My teammates did a great job making shots, they did the hard part. I’m thankful for them, I’m thankful for coach for believing in me. And I am excited to keep going,” said Miller-McIntyre, whose 20 assists snapped the previous mark of 19 shared by Nick Calathes and Facundo Campazzo.

He also set the competition record for most assists in a half with a dozen dimes in the first half.

Making history in style

The 29-year-old Miller-McIntyre said breaking the record was special.

“It means a lot, especially for me. I have heard a lot of rumors and people accusing me of not being a point guard. My teammates believed in me tonight. I hope now people can see that that’s my natural position,” said Miller-McIntyre, who eclipsed his previous best of 15 assists.

Miller-McIntrye broke the record in spectacular fashion, throwing up an alley-oop for Chima Moneke with 2:17 minutes left in the game.

Miller-McIntyre already had 11 rebounds at that point and was only missing the points for a triple double. He made 2 free throws to get to 9 points with 109 seconds to play and returned to the foul line with 79 seconds left for 2 more foul shots. He made the first free throw to send the Buesa Arena crowd into a frenzy.

Miller-McIntyre was subbed out after the free throws with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 20 assists for an index rating of 42. It was the fourth triple-double in EuroLeague history.

“Yeah, I am excited I got it. But my teammates really helped me. They told me to keep going when I got tired. Thank you to them,” said Miller-McIntyre.

Nikola Vujcic twice did it with Maccabi Tel Aviv. The big man collected 11 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in 2005-06 against Prokom Trefl and followed that with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in 2006-07 versus Olimpija Ljubljana.

The most recent triple-double went to Nick Calathes, who picked up 11 points, 12 rebounds and 18 assists for Panathinaikos in 2018-19 against Buducnost.

“That goes to show the type of player that he is — unselfish, does whatever it takes for the team to win. He’s unbelievable,” said Markus Howard, who scored 18 points to lead Baskonia in scoring. “Tonight was one of the best performances I have seen. And I am fortunate to have a guy like him on my team and not have to play against him.”
