I somehow managed to completely demolish the NBA steals record tonight against the Warriors... (we routed them as well... by almost double!) But by doing so, I may have broken the box score limits for the amount of steals that get recorded (could explain why the game gave me TWO dynamic goals to break the NBA steals record on two different quarters).
Last time, I hit 15 steals, and that was enough to break the steals record. Tonight (December 13, 2015 xD), I hit 18... it showed up correctly in the highlights tape score screen, but it doesn't list it correctly in the box score (it seems to have gotten stuck at 15). I went to check my player card; it lists my highest steals record at 18... oh well..
I'm not constantly trying to pick the ball handler either.. I'm playing the passing lanes!
Just for the record (which got smashed to bits <_<), the current NBA steals record (11 steals) in a regular season game is held by two players:
- Larry Kenon: San Antonio Spurs (at Kansas City Kings) on December 26, 1976
- Kendall Gill: New Jersey Nets (vs. Miami Heat) on April 3, 1999
That's pretty badass of them, if you ask me.. I'm kinda surprised that Gary "The Glove" Payton wasn't up there... that dude was on his man like white on rice.
And once again, the NBA steals record has been smashed xD:
February 22, 2016 - 62 points, 5 rebounds, 11 assists, 19 steals.
23/47 FG, 7/14 3PT.
Had to take the box score from the post-game scores otherwise it'd show up as 15 steals.... just couldn't break 20 :(... got another triple-double though! :)
Got up to 23 steals in one game!
April 14, 2007 - 69 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 23 steals, 1 block
