Nicolas Batum triple-doubles with career-high 16 assists in Hornets' win

The assists are a new career-high for Batum, who is dishing out 8.8 per game since the All-Star break, compared to 4.7 before it. Batum has been on fire for owners lately and he'll look to keep it going versus the New York Knicks on Saturday.
