Lance Stephenson butts into Miami Heat huddle (Video)

The Miami Heat didn’t come away with a win in Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals but at least they came off looking a lot better than the Pacers did. Not only did Indiana come off bad after Game 4 when Paul George noted how the Heat were out hustled on the stat sheet — a flat out lie, by the way — Game 5 is being talked about not because of the Pacers win but because of Lance Stephenson’s clowning around.

We’ve all seen the ear blow by now, but that is over shadowing another Stephenson moment in Game 5 that demonstrated how big of clowns the Pacers are was when Stephenson found his way over to the Heat huddle and tried to get cute.

It’s cute that the Pacers can take their lot in the life with such grace as it’s clear they will never be as good as the Heat as long as the teams stay the way they are. Indiana has to stay relevant by pulling stunts like this, which is at least a fun sideshow to this Heat trip to the Finals that is inevitably going to happen.
