Lance Stephenson flops after slapping himself in face (Video)

It was bad enough that Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson flopped after bumping into an opposing Indiana Pacers player during Saturday night's game, but he went above and beyond trying to sell the contact by slapping himself in the face.

Hornets Destroyed by Warriors; 112-87

So what happens when a team with 5 new players and starters with injuries face a full strength, west coast powerhouse? Nothing good.

Hornets Intensity Fades in the 4th; Fall to Blazers

We just can’t quite close out games.  In a game where the Hornets were sporting a 23-point lead, and I was seriously considering going to bed at a normal time, I would have never imagined that we would have lost.  We did though.  102-100 was the final.  I’m glad I stayed up to watch it all, and at the same time, I’m scratching my head as to what the heck happened.  Allowing...
