A few times Lance Stephenson and LeBron James got into it

A few times Lance Stephenson and LeBron James got into it

There wasn't much for James to smile about during the Cavs' 98-80 loss to the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, aside from the typical antics that come with playing against Stephenson.

"He don't back down from nobody and I definitely don't as well", James told reporters after the game.

To top it off, Stephenson continued being a pest to LeBron - the same combo which starred in the best meme in National Basketball Association history.

Stephenson also hit LeBron on the head twice during the game. Unlike a year ago, the Cavs don't have Kyrie Irving's instant offense to help mask any defensive cracks, either.

Cleveland will probably play better offensively in Game 2. Kevin Love had just eight shot attempts.

And after Stephenson had head-butted the stanchion to celebrate a dunk in the first quarter, LeBron mocked Stephenson by doing the same after a made free throw. Assuming Cleveland rights the ship enough to advance past the Pacers, this postseason is likely to present the Cavs with their toughest road to the NBA Finals since James' return.
