Happy birthday to Jason Kidd. The Hall of Famer and former 10-time NBA All-Star turns 47 on Monday. Widely considered one of the greatest point guards of all time, Kidd has now settled into a coaching role as assistant with the Lakers. But during his heyday, he was a force on the floor, finishing his career with more than 100 triple-doubles. He also once had 25 assists in one game, a rare feat. In NBA history, a player has tallied 23 or more assists in a game on just 41 occasions. So in honor of Kidd's birthday, how many of the 41 do you think you can name in five minutes?

Good luck!

Can you name every NBA player to record 23 or more assists in a game?
