(1999) Allen Iverson records playoff record 10 steals vs Orlando
Orlando’s Darrell Armstrong probably still has nightmares about the 1999 playoff series against Iverson and the 76ers. He had 25 turnovers in the four-game series, including 9 in a Game 3 loss. Most of those turnovers were caused by Allen Iverson, who had a playoff-record 10 steals to go with his 33 points, 5 boards and 5 assists in a 97-85 win.
Armstrong did bounce back in Game 4 with 18 points, 8 assists and “only” 4 turnovers but Iverson (37 PTS) and the 76ers were just too much as they brought out the brooms on the Magic.
30 & 10 CLUB
The only other players in NBA history with 30 points and 10 steals are Alvin Robertson (30/10) and Michael Jordan (32/10). Both were in the regular season.
