On this day in history, April 3rd of 1999, Kendall Gill had a triple-double with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 11 steals, which tied the NBA record for steals in a game set by Larry Kenon of San Antonio in 1976.
Gill joined Clyde Drexler as the only NBA player to achieve the rare triple-double of points, rebounds and steals.
“I almost had two more, too,” Gill said upon hearing that he had tied the league record for steals. “If I had known that, I would have tried a little harder to get a couple more.”
