Hornets coach Steve Clifford: Lance Stephenson has a lot of work to do to be a star cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas… http://t.co/4kRbn05GtW

Hornets coach Steve Clifford: Lance Stephenson not a star dlvr.it/7fSYKB

Rick Bonnell

ICYMI, my gamer from last night with lots of Clifford candor about Stephenson not playing last 2 fourth quarters: charlotteobserver.com/2014/11/26/534…

Tim MacMahon

Mavs fans should be thankful Lance Stephenson, the desperation fallback plan this summer, didn't end up in Dallas. es.pn/122O84V

Emiliano Carchia

Steve Clifford: Stephenson is not a star. He's a guy that has talent to become a star sportando.com/en/usa/nba/142…

Kris Willis

Clifford sits Stephenson late: 'Not a star' yet es.pn/11WvUD3 via @espnnba

Andrew Perna

In the wake of Clifford’s comments on Stephenson last night, want to revisit Tweet from Tuesday.

Scott Agness

Things not going well for Lance… MT @WallaceNBA_ESPN: Coach Clifford sits Stephenson late again: "He's not a star" es.pn/11WvUD3

Alex Kennedy

I'm really surprised that Charlotte is 4-12. They've lost seven straight. I thought they'd be a lot better, especially Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

My gamer: Stephenson doesn't play again in 4th quarter. Clifford says he'll play who he's comfortable with: charlotteobserver.com/2014/11/26/534…

Mark Montieth

So... is Stuckey as good as Stephenson? I've thought so since the preseason.

Rick Bonnell

No Lance Stephenson again in fourth quarter. I would say if Portland leaves in Blake at 2-guard, Roberts stays in the game.

Joe Freeman

End of 1st Q: #Blazers lead Hornets 28-26. Matthews has 8 pts, Dame has 7 pts, 2 asts, 2 rbs. Stephenson has 6 pts, 2 rbs for Char.

David 'Dubi' Pick

Pops Mensah-Bonsu is back. Told me he competed over the summer at NY ProAm with Kenneth Faried, Lance Stephenson and Smush Parker.

Vince Cellini

As @Charlotte Hornets struggle, Steve Clifford apparently doesn't see @Lance Stephenson as part of solution, again sitting him late. Re Born waiting

Rick Bonnell

When asked why Stephenson played 7 minutes in 2nd half, Clifford said ball was "sticking" as in poor ball movement.

Rick Bonnell

Rough night for Lance Stephenson. He's 1-of-8 from field for 3 points and has played seven minutes this half.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson being guarded by Hedo Turkoglu. If that isn't an invitation to create...

Dan Woike

Hedo Turkoglu is currently guarding Lance Stephenson, and so far so good?

Tas Melas

I'm trying to defend watching ball every minute of the day to my wife, Lance Stephenson. You're play is not helping tonight.

Tom Haberstroh

Lance Stephenson just walked off the court staring at his bench, holding his hands out like, "Why didn't I get the ball?"

Rick Bonnell

Big-time runner from Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

Heat fans fired up that Lance Stephenson has five fouls.

Rick Bonnell

Double foul for Shannon Brown and Lance Stephenson. Stephenson might get a flop warning for that one.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Lance Stephenson's now made 6 of his last 8, and Hornets have pulled even. Al Jefferson is having no trouble getting post touches.

Rick Bonnell

Tie game on Lance Stephenson's elbow jumper.

Shandel Richardson

Lance Stephenson seemed to have awakened from slow start.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Lance Stephenson just double-dribbled with no defender within 10 feet of him. He's also 0-for-3.

Rick Bonnell

Heat crowd boos Lance Stephenson during player intros. Ear-blowing, I guess.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Sparse crowd in Miami so far tonight, but they remembered to boo Lance Stephenson

Chris Mannix

It's the @SI_Video NBA Mailbag: Talking Lance Stephenson's struggles, Pistons issues and Suns needs to rise in West on.si.com/1F5bIuT

Scott Agness

Also in the notebook: Stuckey working to get his legs/wind back, Stephenson hosts AAU team, Zeller more comfortable bit.ly/1udt56x

Conrad Brunner

Loss to #Pacers demonstrated @Lance Stephenson , #Hornets haven't yet adjusted to each other. bit.ly/1uC0KKw http://t.co/oNL7HMeXys

Mark Montieth

Did @Lance Stephenson talk trash tonight? "Just the usual, he tries to get in your head. Nothing crazy. Nothing unexpected," said Mahinmi.

Mark Montieth

Lance Stephenson was back, but the real drama came on the offensive glass, where the Pacers are dominating: nba.com/pacers/news/pa…

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson 4-of-11.

Scott Agness

Lance Stephenson wasn’t sure what kind of reception he’d receive. Well, it was a mix of cheers and boos. VIDEO: bit.ly/14O6iti

Candace Buckner

At halftime: #Hornets 49-43. Roy Hibbert has 14 points. Al Jefferson with 16 and Lance Stephenson with 6 on 3 of 8 shooting

Andrew Perna

+1 @Rick Bonnell: Larry Brown used to say Felton dribbles a lot without getting anywhere. Sometimes that applies to Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

Larry Brown used to say Raymond Felton dribbles a lot without getting anywhere. Sometimes that applies to Lance Stephenson.

Mark Montieth

Looking forward to Stuckey - Stephenson match-up. Similar athletes.

Candace Buckner

G2 Zone, after Lance Stephenson picks up first foul, chants: "HE'S NOT READY!"

Candace Buckner

5:58 to go in 1st Q, #Pacers off to a 12-8 start. Only one significant touch for Lance Stephenson so far, and it was a turnover.

Rick Bonnell

Pacers crowd giving Lance Stephenson the "J.J. Redick" treatment whenever he touches the ball.

Andrew Perna

Boos for Stephenson when he touches the ball for the first time.

Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson introduced as a #Hornets starter @ Bankers Life Fieldhouse instagram.com/p/vmdFihgcwn/
