Lance Stephenson recorded a double-double the other night against the Atlanta Hawks (17 pts, 13 reb) – but all anyone’s going to remember from that contest is the game winning trey he banked in as time expired in the second overtime.
Off the glass…
Incredibly, this was his first three pointer of the season.
There’s a long season ahead of us, but Hornets fans can certainly cross their fingers in hoping that the bold off-season move to pry Stephenson away from the Pacers was a winner.
Lance is averaging 8.3 points and 10.5 boards per night. Hardly All-Star numbers, but he’s also helping out with five assists in just 35 minutes.
Lance Stephenson: 1st player to hit game-winning 3-pt buzzer-beater in double OT since Dwyane Wade in 2009
