Lance Stephenson and Evan Turner reportedly had quite the scrap on the eve of the playoffs, but as you'd expect, the team got its story straight and denied the severity of the fight.

And now Turner's side of the story:

Impossible for us to know what happened unless the Pacers want to go ahead and release their practice film for us all to see.

Fights happen within teams all the time, but in the Pacers situation with an increasingly tense locker room combined with the fact the team is losing, a fight, scrap, tussle or whatever you want to call it is going to be magnified.

Whatever it was, it seems they've at least put it behind them in the short term. After getting run out of their own arena in Game 1, the Pacers bounced back with a solid Game 2 win. When you win, everyone has a tendency to like each other a bit more. So keep winning.
