The Indiana Pacers got an unlikely win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, coming back from 19 back halfway through the third quarter to snap their four game losing streak and pick up a win to end their road trip.

The Pacers outscored Cleveland 32-21 in the fourth, managing to hold on late thanks to late buckets from Malcolm Brogdon and a remarkable finish for T.J. McConnell, who had a 16 point, 13 assists, and 10 steal triple double, capping it off with a steal against Dylan Windler with one minute to push Indiana’s lead to two possessions.

McConnell not only had a triple double on steals, but shot 8-8 from the field for his 16 points. His effort in the first half completely salvaged what would’ve otherwise been a horrifying show, getting nine steals in the first half alone.

Indiana got a much needed win, but still have one more game before the All-Star Break, hosting the Denver Nuggets tomorrow night.
