Kyrie Irving's performance Sunday against France was one for the history books.

In dishing out a dozen dimes, the point guard tied Team USA's record for most assists in an Olympic game, joining Michael Jordan, Leon Wood, Phil Ford, and of course his Cleveland Cavaliers teammate LeBron James.

Making Irving's 12 assists even more impressive is he notched them without turning the ball over even once. To put that in context, he averaged one turnover for every two assists in the NBA last season.

The 24-year old also recorded 10 points and four rebounds in Team USA's 100-97 win over France.

Talk about elite company.
