Stephenson tallied 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), and five rebounds in 17 minutes during Sunday's 98-80 victory over Cleveland. Stephenson was a thorn in the Cavaliers side Sunday, bringing his trademark energy to the floor. Despite not producing in spades on the stat sheet, he was a pest on defense and made some nice shots on offense. He will look to continue to unhinge the Cavaliers gameplan once again on Wednesday in game two.
Stephenson tallied nine points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 33 minutes during a 119-93 loss to the Hornets on Tuesday. Stephenson's 13 rebounds marked his second best total of the season as he benefited from the absence of several of the team's players in the regular season finale. His effort across the last two games marked the only time all season that he had consecutive double-digit rebounding games consecutively.
Stephenson will draw the start during Tuesday's regular-season finale against the Hornets, freelance sports writer Mark Montieth reports. With Victor Oladipo (foot), Bojan Bogdanovic (rest) and Thaddeus Young (rest) out, the Pacers will deploy a new starting five, resulting in Stephenson drawing the start. In six prior starts this season, he's averaged 13.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 33.7 minutes.
Stephenson compiled eight points (3-13 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Sunday's 123-117 victory over the Hornets. Stephenson came out of nowhere to deliver a vintage performance, coming with just two points of a triple-double. Stephenson is a perplexing player who certainly has the ability to contribute across the board on any given night. Unfortunately, these nights come quite rarely. Despite this performance, he is not worth owning but could be a streaming option as the season comes to its conclusion.
Stephenson scored 25 points (10-15 FG, 2-3 3PT, 3-3 FT) to go with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's 109-102 loss to Washington. Not only did Stephenson set a season-high with 25 points Saturday, the forward led all Indiana scorers from the bench in a loss. In addition, he was a rather efficient 10-15 from the field, setting a season-high with 10 made field goals as well. Not known as a prolific scorer, Stephenson last broke the 20 point mark on January 27. He will look to build upon his stellar scoring performance against the Lakers on Monday.
