Lance Stephenson says ‘fun time is over’ in reference to series vs. Cavs
With not many interesting high seed vs. low seed matchups in the first round, the history between Lance Stephenson and LeBron James should make the 2-vs-7 matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Indiana Pacers a rather interesting one to see.
Many remember Stephenson comically blowing air into James’ ear during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals in 2014, but the Brooklynite has grown since his childish antics, claiming this series will be all business for him.
“Fun time is over,” a zoned-in Stephenson told reporters via Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star.
Fans on Twitter had a hard time believing his serious approach.

@ByNateTaylor That's disappointing. LeBron has his worst playoff game ever during the ear blowing game.

The Pacers lost the series 4-2 back in 2014, but now they have the biggest winning streak coming into the playoffs — momentum they can use to steal a game in Quicken Loans Arena if the opportunity arises.
