Tim Bontemps

Lance Stephenson just tried to hammer one home on Mason Plumlee but fired it off the back of the rim. Fell to the floor begging for a call.

Lance Stephenson can't even make plays against the Nets' end of the bench unit right now.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford was particularly candid tonight when asked about Lance Stephenson. Blog upcoming pre-game.

Chris Mannix

Steve Clifford with an impassioned defense of @Lance Stephenson before the game at Boston. Says LS has never been a problem, works hard.

Sean Highkin

Lance Stephenson fell harder than Madonna on that last possession. #topicaltweets

Kyle Draper

Lance Stephenson may be struggling with the Hornets but I'm still bumping his "freestyle" he released over the offseason. #pregameroutine

Vincent Ellis

I said last summer I would rather have Stuckey at one year, vet minimum vs. Stephenson at 3 and 27 mill.

Earl K. Sneed

Lance Stephenson with the driving score, and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout with a 71-63 lead and 10:05 left to play. #DALvsCHA

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson looks quite frustrated (and distracted) by missing that last jump shot.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson is 2-of-9 after that missed layup.

Rick Bonnell

FWIW: People associated with the Hornets say it's less than likely that they'll deal Lance Stephenson by the deadline.

Scott Agness

Sad really. MT @SiriusXMNBA: .@Adrian Wojnarowski thinks Lance Stephenson will be still be a Hornet on Friday. … no market for him.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson getting no love from the Washington Post: washingtonpost.com/news/fancy-sta…

Rick Bonnell

3 takeaways: Taylor's defense, Stephenson isn't a point guard and they need a refresher on exploiting double-teams: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Adi Joseph

Now I'm wishing assistant coaches talked more often so that we could have heard Shaw's thoughts on Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

Four fouls on Lance Stephenson.

Andrew Perna

Charlotte traded for Mo Williams because they don’t want the ball in Stephenson’s hands. Lows keep coming.

Mike Prada

Feel bad for the three players that won’t get the ball when Mo Williams and Lance Stephenson play together.

Adrian Wojnarowski

Charlotte's determined to make playoffs. Williams gives them chance to bridge until Walker return -- and no longer play Stephenson at point.

Rick Bonnell

That's a good first half for Lance Stephenson: Eight points off five shots, three assists and no turnovers.
