VIDEO: Lance Stephenson grounds Tony Parker for one play anyway

New, comments

Pacers guard dipped into his bag tricks to twist Tony Parker into the ground.

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker had his way with the Indiana Pacers on Friday night with 33 points and 10 assists in the Spurs comeback win over the Pacers.

But for at least one play, Lance Stephenson was able to get the best of Parker as Stephenson put the veteran guard on his can by crossing him up with a NYC playground move Lance grew up on.

Dare I say, Stephenson showed a little maturity throughout the play First, he didn't stop to take a bow after realizing he had left Parker in a heap behind him. Second, Stephenson actually went on to finish the play and score on the double-pump layup to ignite the Fieldhouse.

Finally, after making the move and finishing the play, Stephenson let the play do most of the talking as he went back on defense without any additional animation needed.

The Pacers were rolling at the time and would later learn a lesson in closing up shop, but for one play anyway, Stephenson got the best of Parker.
