Brandon Roy had 10 steals in the Blazers win over the Wizards and that tied the Blazers franchise record. One more would have tied the NBA record of 11. The mark was set by Larry Kenon in 1976 and tied by Kendall Gill in 1999.

Speaking of records, one of the most famous is Wilt Chamberlain's 100 points in one game. Equally as incredible is Wilt's rebound record. Get this, Chamberlain once grabbed 55 rebounds in one game against the Celtics in 1960. During his career Chamberlain broke more than 70 records.

By the way, Roy's 10 steals matched the Great Clyde Drexler and Larry Steele. Larry had his steals in November of 1974. He came within one assist of a quadruple double. Steele had 12 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists and 10 steals.
