The Lance Stephenson experience can be exhausting. He can be a feast-or-famine player, someone that makes you scream at your television with excitement sometimes and bewilderment other times. In the Eastern Conference finals, though, the experience has been nothing but sublime. Building off a strong Game 1, Stephenson is picking the Miami Heat apart on Tuesday, making Mark Jackson bring back catchphrases and driving Bankers Life Fieldhouse crazy in the best way.

By the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Indiana Pacers guard had 23 points, five rebounds and five assists. The video above showcases why, in the third, Jeff Van Gundy said he was "straight ballin'."

Stephenson usually plays like he believes he's the best player on the court. In this game, he has been.
