The Pacers are rolling out of the gate at 3-0 after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers on Satruday night. All issues were easily masked (21 turnovers?) with the strong play of Paul George and Lance Stephenson leading the way.
Speaking of Stephenson, he is rising to lethal levels of production that simply make the Pacers a fierce squad to deal with on a nightly basis. If he can maintain this impact consistently, the young fella will outgrow his "Born Ready" moniker. In fact, last night after snaring a defensive rebound and then bounding up the floor with the ball all I could think of was my man, Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks -- Beast Mode.
Check out this picture from the Indy Star last night, with Lance personifying Beast Mode on the hardwood.
