76ers guard T.J. McConnell made franchise history Monday when he became the first Sixer to record a triple-double off the bench.
McConnell had 10 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in a 108-92 win over the New York Knicks.
“It was amazing. I’m happy for him and I’m glad that he did it. If we want to go where we want to, he’ll be one of those reasons,” 76ers center Joel Embiid said of McConnell, who also had a career-high six steals against the Knicks. “He comes in and plays with great energy; he hypes the crowd up. Defensively, he was great, and he moves the ball well.”
