VIDEO: Tyson Chandler gives Lance Stephenson a hard playoff foul
Tyson Chandler put Lance Stephenson on the deck with a brutal playoff foul in Game 5 between Indiana and New York.
Tyson Chandler has struggled this season and is continuing to struggle in the series against the Pacers. He looks slower, he looks less mobile, he looks like an injured player getting older. So Lance Stephenson decided to test him in the second quarter of Game 5.
He chose ... poorly.
Ow. That's not a flagrant, that's a good hard playoff foul from a player protecting the rim and protecting his reputation. It was worth trying, to see if you could really demoralize the Knicks by yamming on their only interior defender. But Tyson's old, he's not dead. And he let Stephenson know it.
The two best point guards in the East go at it in a series sure to be filled with drama.
