The Indiana Pacers. The Eastern Conference Finals.
Who would have thought?
We knew they’d be back…some year.
But at the beginning of the 2012-2013 season? After losing their best shooter, Danny Granger, who would have thought it would be this year?
Anyone who watched them in the playoffs. That’s who.
Because the Pacers...
The Indiana Pacers needed a career-high game from Lance Stephenson to take down the New York Knicks in Game 6.
Stephenson chipped in 25 points on Saturday as the Pacers walked away with a hard fought 106-99 win to advance to the Eastern Conference finals.
Stephenson also secured 10 rebounds while Paul George contributed 23 points to the Pacers’ collection plate.
Give It Up To The Lance
You need to be something of a NBA nerd to know much about the Pacers, let alone Lance Stephenson.

Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson tried to get high and mighty with New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler late in the second quarter of their Game 5 playoff battle and found out the hard way why Chandler is one of the top defensive big men in the NBA.
As Stephenson dribbled into the paint, Chandler prevented him from "climbing the ladder" with a hard foul that left...
Things that Indiana Pacers Lance Stephenson learned tonight…
1) If you trying to throw down a monster dunk, it’s a good decision to have an open lane to do so
2) If Tyson Chandler is standing in the way, you will get denied
3) Tyson Chandler will send you to the ground hard if you attempt to dunk on him:
Indiana guard Lance Stephenson returned to the Pacers' playoff game to start the second half Wednesday night following a hard foul on an attempted layup.
Stephenson was diagnosed with a bruised right hip and was listed as questionable to return but started the second half.
