Tim Frazier Records Triple-Double Off The Bench In Win Over Suns

Tim Frazier is continuing his strong play from the start of the season for the New Orleans Pelicans.

Last night, Frazier recorded his first career triple-double in a 120-119 OT road victory over the Phoenix Suns. The undrafted guard out of Penn State tallied 14 points to go along with 11 rebounds and 11 assists. His made free throw with three seconds to go in overtime helped seal the deal in the Pelicans’ victory.

The 11 boards is a new career high for Frazier topping his previous high of eight which was recorded last season also against the Suns on April 9. The third year guard was all over the floor defensively, notching a career-high five steals in the game as well.

He is the first Nittany Lion to ever record a triple-double in an NBA contest, and is the first undrafted player to do so since Jeremy Lin in the 2014 season. Here are some highlights from Frazier’s career night in the association:

Frazier is currently averaging 10.9 points per game and 7.6 assists per game for the Pelicans. His 7.6 APG is good for sixth-best in the league. Frazier came off the bench for just the second time this season last night, so it remains to be seen what his permanent role will be under coach Alvin Gentry with former All-Star point Jrue Holiday returning to full action. Regardless, hopefully Stephen A. Smith is still watching.
