Lance Stephenson’s never been one to shy away from the spotlight. Many remember him as the one that challenged LeBron James in past playoff series between the Pacers and the Heat. With the top seeded Indiana down 1-0 to the 8 seeded Hawks, they’re pushing back in the press before they try to do the same on the court tonight.

Stephenson has passed along hints to the media of a planned attack on Jeff Teague tonight in Game 2.

What could this “something” entail? More double teams? Stephenson picking Teague up at halfcourt? ¾ court? Full court?

Of course he won’t tell us in advance.

As already stated, the Pacers have mulled changes like sticking Paul George on Teague or going small to combat the spacing mastery of this Hawks team. This is a mystery that will be resolved soon enough.
