DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Kidd became the fourth player in NBA history with 10,000 career assists during the third quarter of Sunday night's game against the Toronto Raptors.

The 14-year veteran handed out his 13th assist of the night when he passed to Brandon Bass for a 10-foot turnaround with 1:04 left in the quarter. Kidd received a standing ovation when the milestone was announced to the sellout crowd.

Kidd trails John Stockton (15,806), Mark Jackson (10,334) and Magic Johnson (10,141) on the career list.
