Joakim Noah dished out 120 assists in the month of March. The Bulls played a ton of games in March (16 in 31 days), but that's still an impressive average of 7.5.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, that is the most assists by a center in a single month since Wilt Chamberlain had 155 in March, 1968. That was the year Wilt decided he'd done enough scoring in his career, so he led the league in assists with 8.6.

Among all players, Noah finished tied for 7th in assists during March. Here's the list:

1. Rajon Rondo, Bos 11.1
2. Chris Paul, LAC 10.3
3. John Wall, Was 9.0
4. Ty Lawson, Den 8.8
5. Ricky Rubio, Min 8.6
6. Kendall Marshall, LAL 7.9
7. Joakim Noah, Bulls 7.5
(tie) Kemba Walker, Cha 7.5
