Hornets’ Coach Steve Clifford Frustrated with Guard Lance Stephenson

Hornets’ Coach Steve Clifford Frustrated with Guard Lance Stephenson

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson has yet to live up to expectations after the team made him their big free agent acquisition over the summer, and his head coach Steve Clifford has admitted as much.

The Hornets signed Stephenson away from the Indiana Pacers after agreeing on a three-year deal worth $27 million. They thought they'd be getting a dynamic guard coming into his prime.

"To be fair, one of the things that's made it more difficult for him is that he came here and people proclaimed him as the next superstar," Clifford said Wednesday. "He's not a star. He's a guy that has talent to become a star. To be a star in this league, you have to do it over years."

So far this season, Stephenson is averaging 9.7 points on .368% shooting, 8.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.

Clifford decided to sit Stephenson the entire fourth quarter during the team's loss to Portland Trail Blazers for the second consecutive game.

Smart Carted Off in Celtics Win

Smart Carted Off in Celtics Win

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Celtics guard Marcus Smart was carted off the court Friday night after injuring his left ankle in the fourth quarter of Boston's 101-98 win over Indiana.

The rookie appeared to step on the Pacers Lavoy Allen and immediately went to the floor, clutching his left ankle. Team doctors rushed to his side before calling for a stretcher. His leg was immobilized and he was carted off the court, giving a thumbs up as he departed.

"It was really scary and then, obviously, he was writhing in pain, so that makes it even more scary," coach Brad Stevens said. "We're hoping it's a sprain, but we don't know that. So obviously a great deal of concern for him, No. 1. And hopefully he can get back sooner rather than later because he's really playing great basketball."

Smart was the 6th overall pick by the Celtics in this year's NBA draft and was averaging 7.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in the first four games of the season. Five players scored in double figures for Boston who improved to 2-3 while the Pacers dropped to 1-5 on the young season.

Pacers’ George Takes Jump Shots at Practice

Pacers’ George Takes Jump Shots at Practice

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Less than three months ago, Paul George was being carried off the floor from a intersquad scrimmage with Team USA with a broken leg. On Monday, the Indiana Pacers forward was seen shooting jump shots with his teammates at practice.

Video surfaced from Pacers practice that showed George taking midrange jumpers as well as shooting some three-pointers in the gym following practice. The small forward suffered a grisly compound fracture in his right leg on Aug. 1 during a televised scrimmage with Team USA before the FIBA World Cup.

The 24-year-old has been cleared to put weight on his leg and begin upper-body workouts. George also proclaimed recently that he plans to play at some point during the upcoming NBA season.

A two-time All-Star, George has not missed more than three games in a season since the 2011-12 campaign. Last year he helped lead the Pacers back to the Eastern Conference Finals, averaging 21.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.

Paul George Doesn’t Blame Team USA

Paul George Doesn’t Blame Team USA

NBA via Indiana Pacers(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Pacers All-Star Paul George spoke for the first time since breaking his leg during a Team USA scrimmage in Las Vegas on Friday.

George wasn't putting any of the blame on Team USA for his "freak accident" and even said that he wanted to play on the 2016 Olympic team.

"Freak accidents happen," George said. "USA Basketball doesn't deserve any criticism from this."

George said he plans on being a leader on the bench for the rest of his teammates while he recovers.

"I plan on making a full recovery coming back from this," George said at a news conference. "I'm taking this in a positive way. I get to sit back and watch the game -- and just learn."

George and the Pacers haven't set a date for his return, but the All-Star wants to fully recover before he gets back on the court to avoid any other injury.

"I feel guilty about not being there for the start of (the) season," he said. "To not be a part of that, it hurts. Something I have to live with.

"The last thing I will do is feel like I am not a part of this team because I'm out."

Shawn Marion and Pacers Meet

Shawn Marion and Pacers Meet

Dallas Mavericks/NBA(NEW YORK) -- Shawn Marion met with the Indiana Pacers on Monday and had a face-to-face meeting with the team president, Larry Bird. The sit downs came after Bird urged the free-agent forward to play next year in Indianapolis after losing Paul George to a compound leg fracture.

Marion had been rumored to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers and play with Lebron James, which is still a possibility. The Cavaliers however are restricted to only pay the big man a league minimum salary of $1.4 million per season while the Pacers will be granted a $5.3 million disabled player exemption due to George's injury.

The All-Star forward has said he wants to play for a contender if he does wind up leaving the Dallas Mavericks, where he has spent the last five seasons. Last season, the 36-year-old averaged 10.4 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game.

Paul George Suffers Serious Leg Injury

Paul George Suffers Serious Leg Injury

NBA via Indiana Pacers(LAS VEGAS) -- Indiana Pacers forward Paul George suffered what appeared to be a serious right leg injury in the fourth quarter of the Team USA intrasquad scrimmage in Las Vegas Friday night. 

George was running after James Harden, who was on the other team, when his leg buckled prompting him to slide into the base behind the basket. 

After the play everyone immediately stopped in shock and awe as it appeared George had broken his leg just above his ankle. Coach Mike Krzyzewski, medics and members of George's family hurried to his side. 

George was treated on the court and had his leg put in an air cast before being taken off in a stretcher to a thundering applause.

The game was stopped after the incident.

"This is a very tough blow," USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said. "It's a first for us in USA basketball to have something like this take place. It's a tough situation for our entire organization, our coaches and players and very, very emotional. There's no way the game could have gone on under the circumstances."

George is being treat at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Las Vegas.

Hornets Agree to Deal with Lance Stephenson

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Charlotte Hornets have reached a deal with one of the top free agents on the market as they've agreed on a three-year deal with former Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson.

ESPN is reporting that the deal is worth $27 million. The Hornets have a team option in the third year of the contract as well.

"Lance is forever grateful for all the love he's received from Pacers fans. He is especially grateful to his teammates, Frank Vogel, Herb Simon, the Pacers management and most of all, Larry Bird," Stephenson's agent, Alberto Ebanks, said in a statement. "While we tried our best to come to the best possible terms for both sides, there was not sufficient flexibility in the terms of the contract, particularly the length of the contract."

What makes this a peculiar move for Stephenson is that the Pacers had offered Stephenson a five-year deal worth $54 million. He turned the deal down because he said he felt undervalued.

Stephenson's fourth NBA season proved to be his best as a pro. In 78 games, he averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game.

Frank Vogel Will Return to Pacers Next Season

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Frank Vogel is safe next season, reports ESPN and Yahoo! Sports.  The Indiana Pacers decided that they will be giving Vogel another shot in the 2014-15 season after the team fell to the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night.

Vogel guided the team to their second straight Conference finals appearance, but has not been able to finish the deal against Miami.

Vogel will return to coach in his fifth season in the final year of his contract.

Indiana was almost upset in the first round by the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks and Vogel saw the team go 23-19 in the second half of the season.

Vogel is 167-100 in the regular season and 28-26 in the playoffs.

Heat Advance to Fourth Straight NBA Finals

Heat Advance to Fourth Straight NBA Finals

Chris Trotman/Getty Images(MIAMI, Fla.) -- It was the same old story in Miami on Friday night as another dominating performance from the Heat led to another appearance in the NBA Finals. Miami defeated Indiana 117-92 in Game 6, clinching their fourth consecutive Eastern Conference Championship.

The Heat became just the fourth team, and third franchise ever, to reach four consecutive NBA finals. The last team to complete the feat was the Boston Celtics (1984-87). Now they look to become the first team since the Los Angeles Lakers (2000-2002) to win three straight NBA Championships.

Both LeBron James and Chris Bosh scored 25 points as Miami knocked out the Pacers for the third straight year in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat trailed 9-2 early but went on an 11-0 run to take a lead that they would not relinquish. With the win Miami set a franchise record with their 11th straight home postseason victory.

Indiana, which had led the Eastern Conference for most of the season, got 29 points from Paul George and another 16 from David West. Once again, Roy Hibbert was almost unproductive, scoring just eight points in the loss.

Miami led by as many as 37, their biggest margin at any point during the season. They now await the winner of the Western Conference Finals between Oklahoma City and San Antonio. The Heat beat San Antonio last season and took down the Thunder in 2012 to win their first of consecutive titles.

George Scores 37, Pacers Stay Alive

George Scores 37, Pacers Stay Alive

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Paul George scored 21 of his game-high 37 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 93-90 do-or-die victory over the Miami Heat Wednesday, in Game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.

The Heat lead the best-of-seven series three games to two.

"I just felt it. I felt in rhythm. I had to be aggressive," George said. "I tried to come out and be aggressive to start this game off, and I was getting looks. I got hot." That was something Heat forward LeBron James never had a chance to do: James was in foul trouble the entire game; he only played 24 1/2 minutes, scoring a career playoff-low seven points.

Despite the lack of production from James, the Heat hung in. Rashard Lewis scored 18 points, hitting 6-of-9 from 3-point land. Dwyane Wade also had 18 points as well as eight rebounds and seven assists.

The Heat had a chance to win the game at the end when LeBron James drove to the basket and dished the ball to Chris Bosh in the corner for a three, but Bosh's shot clanked off the rim forcing a Game 6.

The series now shifts to Miami Friday night. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Eastern.
