LeBron James and Lance Stephenson kept their rivalry hot in Game 4

It’s more than fair to say LeBron James and Lance Stephenson have some history. They’ve been involved in some entertaining and contentious plays over the past few seasons. In Game 4 on Sunday, the two managed to add a few more highlights to their rivalry.

The biggest moment came with a little over six minutes to play. With the Pacers leading by two, James finally let Stephenson get to him.

James pushed out his arm to shove Stephenson away. It wasn’t really a hard shove, but Stephenson sold it well, stumbling and going to the floor. That resulted in James receiving a technical foul.

Not surprisingly, Stephenson continued to try and get under James’ skin. After forcing a jump ball, Stephenson grabbed the ball from James and held it up over his head with one hand.


While James’ brief moment of frustration led to the Pacers extending their lead late, the Cavaliers still managed to fight their way back. Cleveland managed to even the series 2-2, winning Game 4 by a score of 104-100.

With the win, the team will look to try and take its first lead in the series after Game 5 on Wednesday. Perhaps more importantly, though, it guarantees we’ll get at least two more games of James and Stephenson going at it.
