Coach Steve Clifford continues to deflect attention from Stephenson by emphasizing that he is not yet a superstar-caliber player.

“He played in the same place for four years,” Clifford said. “A lot of it is the same, a lot of it is different. He’s got new teammates that he’s learning to play with. I think it’s a comfort thing. I talked to him the other day [and told him] you have to handle frustration, handle disappointment, and handle success the same way. You learn from it and you go on.
