The Pacers haven’t announced it yet, but reports say the team is set to sign Lance Stephenson in the near future. The electric guard departed Indiana for Charlotte in free agency a few years ago and was never able to return to what he was.
After bouncing around a few teams, Stephenson is ready to return, and his teammates are welcoming him with open arms.
“Lance is a ball player and he’s a guy that fits right in,” George said Wednesday, via the Indianapolis Star. “I think one area that we need and we’re lacking is a shot creator and a playmaker (in the second unit) and you’ve got a guy that can do both of those.”
Stephen Curry scored a team-high 24 points with seven rebounds and five assists. Klay Thompson added 20 points and eight rebounds, but the bench came up big for the Warriors at Oracle Arena.
Andre Iguodala scored 14 points with five rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals, while JaVale McGee scored 13 points with five blocks and four rebounds in just 11 minutes of action.
The Warriors received a total of 49 points off the bench, with all six players shooting 50 percent or better from the field. Even backup guard Paypal Cheap Jerseys Ian Clark was draining 3-pointers.
