Lance Stephenson trolls Heat repeatedly during Game 5
If there has been one person who has been a constant irritant to the defending champion Miami Heat, it
has got to be Lance Stephenson. Whether engaging in a war of words with LeBron James or questioning
the effectiveness of Dwayne Wade’s knees, Stephenson has managed to be a thorn in the side of not
only the NBA’s best player but the Heat in general.
Stephenson, seemingly sensing that his team was on the brink of elimination, raised his standard
nuisance level beyond ten in the Pacers 93 – 90 win over the Heat. During the game, the talented two
guard found his way into a Miami huddle, earning the ire of Heat head coach Eric Spoelstra.
Lance wasn’t done yet. During a stoppage in play, the Brooklyn born player managed to blow in Lebron
James’s ear, earning a priceless reaction from the 4-time Most Valuable Player. James, who had his
worst game of the series said this about Stephenson’s antics, “All the extra, whatever, that Lance wants
to do, I don’t really care about that.”
