Pacers point guard TJ McConnell is continuing to prove that playing the right way can make you very successful in the NBA. McConnell’s high level basketball IQ and instincts are helping him rank #1 in assists & steals off the bench this season. Indiana head coach Nate Bjorkgren says he’s very confident in McConnell’s decision making with the ball in his hands, as he hit a clutch dagger vs San Antonio down the stretch on Saturday.

“I trust TJ very much out there. I trust the basketball in his hands that he’ll make the right plays, the right reads and the right passes. His teammates trust him just the same.”
