Lance Stephenson Tries to Foul LeBron James out of Game 5 with Hilarious Flop

Kyle NewportFeatured Columnist IVOctober 10, 2016

The Indiana Pacers' season was on the line in Game 5 on Wednesday night, so Lance Stephenson pulled out all of his tricks. 

His bizarre ear-blowing tactic will get all of the attention, but it's what he did early in the fourth quarter that will get the NBA's attention.

With LeBron James playing with five fouls, Stephenson did everything he could to try to fool the referees into calling a sixth.

Nice try.

Update: Thursday, May 29 at 3:50 p.m. ET

As expected, the league has fined Stephenson for the flop:
