As much as we all know Lance Stephenson for his unorthodox and clown-ish style of play — we witnessed possibly and arguably his best career highlight in the Hornets thrilling 122-119 victory against the visiting Atlanta Hawks last night.
It was a neck-and-neck game throughout, and it stayed that way right to the final buzzer. In fact it required two overtime periods to finally settle the victor. In the second overtime period with exactly 2.7 second remaining, the Hornets had the possession and Stephenson eventually became the man of the hour as he banked in the game-winning shot, which was also his first three-pointer of the season.
Maybe Lance should do this more often, rather than flopping and blowing in somebody’s ear.
