Lance Stephenson said after the Pacers loss Sunday, where he was held to seven points and one rebound, he felt he needed to show people he was up to the challenge of facing the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
In Game 4 Tuesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Stephenson redeemed himself with his second-biggest offensive output of the playoffs.
“I couldn’t even sleep last night,” Stephenson said. “My teammates were on me. I didn’t play up to my abilities the last game. I felt [Tuesday] I had to show everybody that I’m ready for any competition and any challenge that comes to me.”
