MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul tied the NBA record for most consecutive games with a steal on Tuesday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Paul's theft came after a bad pass by Grizzlies forward Darko Milicic with 3:33 left in the first quarter. That gave Paul 105 straight games with a steal, pulling him even with Alvin Robertson's mark set between November 1985 and December 1986.
The stat crew initially gave the steal to David West, but reviewed the play before changing it to Paul.
Paul leads the league with 2.7 steals per game.
