#NBATopShotThis: Nikola Jokic's unreal behind-the-head assist

Jokic has breaking records left, right and centre this season, especially when it comes to passing.

Now in his sixth season, the Serbian centre has already built a strong case for being the best passing big man the game has ever seen, and he has a way of reminding everybody of that fact time-and-again.

Against the Houston Rockets on Friday, Jokic dished out one of his best assists of the season. Receiving the ball in the post, he backed his defender down and threw the ball over his head to PJ Dozier as the double-team approached from the baseline.

Jokic finished the game with 29 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists in the comfortable 128-99 win over the Rockets.

Jokic has multiple different moments on the Top Shot marketplace, ranging in price from $14 to as much as $59,999 (USD).
