Myles Turner happy Lance Stephenson caused skirmish

Pacers Raptors

Lance Stephenson made his Indiana Pacers home debut on Tuesday night, and he wasted little time doing Lance Stephenson things, though at least one teammate appreciate his actions.

Stephenson decided to pad his stats with a layup in the final seconds of the Pacers’ double-digit win over the Toronto Raptors.

That made it 108-90 with 3.3 seconds left. The Raptors unsurprisingly did not appreciate Stephenson’s actions and things got tense, with a skirmish nearly breaking out.

Stephenson and PJ Tucker were hit with double-technicals, while DeMar DeRozan also got a tech.

After the game, Stephenson, who is in just his second game back with Indy, apologized.

Even though some were critical of Stephenson for padding his stats at the end of a game, his teammate Myles Turner thought the move was good for the team.

The Pacers are 38-40 on the season and could use some more motivation as they try to close out the season by clinching a playoff berth.
