Dwyane Wade breaks Michael Jordan's record for most career blocks by a guard

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 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 has 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 came into the game against the Hawks with a 28-34 record and in 10th in the Eastern Conference standings.
