“Lance is as tough as nails, those New York guys,” said Al Jefferson who scored a game-high 34 points. “You see when he got the ball what he did with it.”
I don’t think he called glass but what he did was hit a game-winning 3 in double OT to give the Hornets a 122-119 victory.
“I haven’t made a shot all season long,” said Stephenson, who has been struggling with his shot during the first week of the season. “Hopefully that will give me more confidence to keep hitting more shots.”
Lance improved on his 25% field goal percentage by hitting 7 of 15 shots and finishing with 17 points to go with 13 rebounds and 4 assists.
