Lance Stephenson Causes Late Scuffle With Raptors


Indiana’s 108-90 home victory over Toronto on Tuesday night was marred by a heated confrontation between the Pacers’ Lance Stephenson and the Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan with 3.3 seconds remaining in the contest.

The shoving match broke out when tempers flared between Stephenson and DeRozan after the Raptors guard took issue with Stephenson’s layup at the end of the Pacers’ runaway win over their Eastern Conference rivals. DeRozan told reporters after the tilt that the play was “disrespectful to the game.” Tucker called the play “classless” and “tasteless.”
