The Muggsy Bogues Standard

Last night, Toronto Raptors point guard Jose Calderon had his third game of the 2013 season with 10 assists and 0 turnovers.  This sounded like a lot and I decided to look into the all-time record for most 10/0 games in a season.  Calderon himself had 6 such games in the 2008 season alone.  So he is basically on track to hit his career high but could he break the single season record?

It’s not likely.  Former Hawks all-star Mookie Blaylock posted nine 10/0 games back in 1994.  Though Calderon has a chance to catch Muggsy Bogues for 2nd place.  As you can see the NBA’s shortest player ever dominates the list of 10/0 games since the ’86 season (when Basketball-Reference has full data).
