Lance Stephenson loses mind in Game 1

NBA Coaches Are Biting the Dust

One of the wild cards on the Memphis Grizzlies is Lance Stephenson. Ever since he joined the league in 2010, Stephenson has been a polarizing player. His on court antics are entertaining to say the least. How long a team puts up with them largely depends on how productive he is. Going against the San Antonio Spurs, the second best team in the Western Conference, Stephenson was going to be an X-factor. In one way, he was as he lost his mind after a frustrating sequence.

In Stephenson's defense, it can be quite frustrating and infuriating to be covered by Kawhi Leonard of the Spurs. He's an extremely intense defender who is relentless when he covers someone. Stephenson lost his cool thanks to Leonard's defense. Advantage Spurs.

He has done well with the Grizzlies in 26 games. Since joining them, Stephenson has a career best 14.2 points per game average primarily coming off the bench in an offensive role. He has also averaged 4.4 rebounds per game and 2.8 assists per game. Stephenson will have to keep his cool.
