T.J. McConnell sets NBA records with unbelievable triple-double


T.J. McConnell finished the Pacers' Wednesday night game against the Cavaliers with a whopping 10 steals... and somehow, it was a little bit disappointing.

That's only because McConnell became the all-time leader with nine steals in just the first half of action, picking opponents' pockets like Apollo Robbins. That's right — no one, not even Michael Jordan (who had eight in the first half in a 1988 game), had ever come out with nine steals in a single half of NBA action before McConnell did it against the Cavs.

But that was only the first mark that McConnell made in the league record books, and it's also the reason why it was a tad underwhelming that he finished with "only" 10 steals as a whole. But in doing so, McConnell became the 11th player in NBA history to record a 10-steal triple-double, and the only one of that bunch to have done so off the bench (via Stathead).
