TJ McConnell has career game for Indiana Pacers, surpassing his career total in one half

As of Monday, Indiana Pacers point guard TJ McConnell had never scored more than 23 points in an NBA game. He had never finished a game with more than three outside jumpers in his career. His skills include driving and kicking more than scoring, so filling the net is rarely something the experienced guard does.

At the end of Monday, all of McConnell’s career-best digits changed. He had 25 points and four made three-pointers against the Milwaukee Bucks, both of which were career highs. But those weren’t his final stats. Those were his stats at halftime.
