Pacers forward Paul George lamented his teammate Lance Stephenson's comments about LeBron James in Game 3 and in advance of Game 4 following the Pacers' 102-90 loss to Miami on Monday. 

"Well, you know, Lance is young," George said. "You know that's teaching point, it's a learning lesson for him. Sometimes you just gotta watch what you say.

George spoke more on the subject later in the press conference. 

Stephenson said after the game he had "no regrets" about his comments.
