Kobe Bryant has a habit of making history against the Toronto Raptors, and the Los Angeles Lakers star did so again Sunday.

En route to his 20th career triple-double, the 36-year-old Bryant earned his 6,000th career assist midway through the third quarter of L.A.’s 129-122 overtime win over the Raptors.

It made him the first player in NBA history with that many assists and at least 30,000 career points.

“It’s a huge honor. It means I pass more than people say,” Bryant said after the game about the milestone.
