Stephenson supplied 22 points (9-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, and three assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's 106-102 loss in Game 4 against the Cavaliers.
Stephenson had himself a heck of a series, scoring 16.0 points on 50 percent shooting from from the field to go along with 5.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.8 threes, and 0.5 steals in 26.8 minutes per game. After struggling for most of the last three seasons, Stephenson finally re-established himself back where it all started. While it's unclear exactly what type of role he will enter 2017-18 with, Stephenson could once again be a factor in fantasy.
Stephenson supplied 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 24 minutes Thursday in a 119-114 Game 3 loss to the Cavaliers.
Despite having been with the Pacers for less than a month, Stephenson has already emerged as the team's top bench contributor in the series, with his ability to serve as a secondary ball handler and defend LeBron James earning him ample minutes. While Stephenson provided the Pacers with some quality numbers on the offensive end Thursday, he and the Indiana defense had no answers in the second half for James, who scored 28 of his 41 points after the break to help the Cavaliers overcome a 26-point deficit and claim a 3-0 series lead. Stephenson should be in store for around 25 minutes or so in Sunday's Game 4 as the Pacers aim to stave off elimination.
Stephenson scored 16 points (8-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while adding seven rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 109-108 Game 1 loss to the Cavaliers.
It's been a tough road for the 26-year-old since he left Indiana as a free agent after the 2013-14 season, but Stephenson looked happy to be home Saturday and provided the Pacers with a big spark off their second unit in the near-upset. He may need to continue coming up big if the team is going to avoid a first-round exit from the playoffs.
Stephenson finished with nine points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, one rebound and one steal across 23 minutes during Thursday's 104-89 victory over the Bucks.
Stephenson has played in three games since joining the Pacers, averaging 8.3 points, 3.7 assists and 2.0 rebounds across 22.0 minutes per game. Though it was originally thought that he may have a limited role with the team through his first few games, Stephenson has already carved out a significant niche for himself off the Pacers' bench. It seems safe to say that he'll see around a 20-minute workload for the remainder of the season, making him an intriguing option off the wire in deeper leagues due to his ability to stuff the stat sheet.
The Pacers are off Thursday before taking on the Raptors on Friday, but Stephenson won't make his debut until Sunday's game against the Cleveland as he gets situated with his third different team this season. Stephenson, who is postseason-eligible after inking a three-year, $12 million contract, could be limited over his first few games with the team, but the Pacers are desperate to right the ship as they chase down a playoff spot, so they'll likely give him an opportunity to carve out a decent-sized role off the bench. Still, it's probably best to leave Stpehenson on the wire when it comes to assessing his late-season fantasy value, which may not reach its peak until a potential postseason run.
