Lance Stephenson finished with 13 points, four assists, two boards, and two steals on 6-of-13 from the field in Monday’s 111-117 loss to the Cavs.
Although Stephenson’s stat line was similar to his line in game one, he wasn’t nearly as effective. In the third quarter Nate McMillan decided to stick the guard on Kevin Love. The big man tore him apart scoring 10 straight points to give the Cavs a big lead going into the fourth quarter. Stephenson should still continue to see 25-30 minutes going forward and will have a chance to help steal a game in Indiana on Thursday.
Don’t like Pacers putting Stephenson on Love. It’s caused him to be frustrated, and in turn negatively impact the game.
