Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade has broken one of Michael Jordan's records.
Wade, who is in his final NBA season, reached 1,052 blocks for his career with a first-quarter rejection against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, giving him the most blocks by a guard in league history.
Jordan held the previous record with 1,051.
Wade will only improve upon this accomplishment, as Miami have 19 regular-season games remaining.
Wade entered Monday averaging 14.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 2018-19. He is averaging .8 blocks per game in his 16 NBA seasons.
The Heat went into the game against the Hawks with a 28-34 record and in 10th in the Eastern Conference standings.
