Default Lance Stephenson plays like Manu...

When he first joined the Spurs. One WTF play followed by a brilliant one that maybe only five guys in the league can make. This cat is fearless, and once he gets more playing time, he's going to be a problem.

What Stephenson needs is Manu-like body control when he gets in the lane. Manu can put his head under his shoe, and still hit some crazy lefty flip shot.

Stephenson has the speed and handles to get in the lane pretty easily, even against Miami's great perimeter defense. If he works on finishing with floaters, he'd be very hard to stop once he got rolling.

I believe he holds the NY high school scoring record, so dude has no conscience.

Great draft pick by Indy. If he keeps his head together, he could be a star SG.

I was thinking this same thing during the game. Only Manu is obviously the better player.

He's the SG version of Pekovic. He can bull his way into the basket with ease.

Even Lance's jumpshots are feast or famine.. Ive seen like 10+ straight bricks where he shoots a 3 and it hits nothing but backboard. And then hell hit a fadeaway swish to end the third quarter like last night.
