And the reviews are in. Sabonis is living up to his family name — and building a new NBA family of his own. Lance Stephenson says Sabonis makes the game easy. Cory Joseph says he appreciates how Sabonis throws his body around and gets loose balls. Turner, who is a month and a half older than Sabonis, says he is learning from his new teammate. “Man, he’s f—ing terrible,” laughed Victor Oladipo, who came over from the Thunder with Sabonis in the George trade. “I’m just playing. He’s awesome, man. I mean, I’ve been watching Damo since he was at Gonzaga and then he joined OKC last year with me. To see his growth over just a year span is amazing.”
Pacers guard Lance Stephenson was the catalyst with a superb performance (16 points, 11 rebounds), igniting the Pacers, and getting under the skin of LeBron James (27 points, 11 assists, eight rebounds), who drew a technical foul for pushing Stephenson in frustration. “Overall it was just a great team win,” said Pacers guard Victor Oladipo, who finished with 19 points, putting the Pacers ahead for good with his final basket. “We did some great things down the stretch. They got into us early, and we just did a great job of showing resiliency.”
“He’s an outstanding player, you can’t just play him soft and regular,” said Stephenson of James. “I told myself tonight I was going to get into him, play him hard, make him make tough baskets.” Asked if James said anything to him, Stephenson said, “Nah. I wish he would. He don’t never say nothing.” Asked if he thought he got under James’ skin, Stephenson said, “It looked like I did today. This is the first time he reacted to me.”
With about eight minutes left in the game, the Pacers swingman was able to get James to commit a technical foul. Stephenson kept bumping James and being his annoying self until the three-time champ pushed him just enough to where he could successfully sell it. The complaining James did right before the small shove probably didn’t help him much either. Oh, and before that, Stephenson was playing the air guitar to celebrate a three.
Immediately after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ two-point loss against the Indiana Pacers on Friday night, LeBron James wasn’t interested in discussing the debatable call that went against him in the final seconds, only offering that it didn’t go his way. However, James caught a glimpse of a different angle after leaving the locker room and tweeted that the referees ruled correctly, charging James with his fifth turnover. LeBron James: Definitely stepped out by a tiny bit after seeing it over again! Great call. Needed to be in OKC on that drive. Lol. Live and you Learn.
