Lance Stephenson scored 12 points (5-15 FGA/ 1-2 FTA) going 1-for-4 from three-point range with five rebounds, six assists and two steals in the Hornets 105-100 loss to the Magic on Friday.
Stephenson continues to disappoint thus far, with another underwhelming performance on Friday. He's continuing to put up decent totals all around, but the point totals from last season just haven't translated into the breakout season some expected. In his defense, while his point per game total has dropped, his assists average has risen from 4.6 to 5.4 and his rebounds have gone from 7.2 to 9.1. He should continue to improve as he gets more comfortable with the Hornet's offense and could still have a nice season.
