Right now, Steve Nash leads the league in assists per game averaging 11.2. He has started in 50 out of 54 games thus far in the shortened schedule. Nash also turned 38 back in February and according to ESPN's Marc Stein, the 15-year veteran wants to play for three more.
Sure, some teams might hesitate to give Nash a three-year deal this summer when he becomes an unrestricted free agent. But those GMs should probably watch the video above..
Working off a screen from Martin Gortat in the first quarter against Utah, Nash dribbled to his right with Jamaal Tinsley guarding him. Well, Tinsley only guarded him for maybe two seconds until Nash made an incredible crossover causing the Jazz guard to fall down. Then Nash hit Markieff Morris in the corner with a quick behind-the-back pass and the rookie swished a 3-pointer to give the Suns a 29-28 lead.
Nash went on to hit the game-winner in the final seconds and the Suns beat the Jazz 107-105.
The two-time MVP has pushed the Suns into playoff contention sitting one game out of the eighth seed.
