On Sunday the Cleveland Cavaliers evened up their series with the Indiana Pacers at 2 games apiece. The 104-100 victory had LeBron James on the floor for all but two minutes.
So the fact that LeBron only received one technical foul while having to put up with Lance Stephenson for that long is pretty impressive. The tech came on a flop by Stephenson as he sold a light shove from LeBron.

LeBron used an elementary school analogy to explain what happened on the foul.
“Lance told me a joke, I laugh, teacher caught me. Now I got to go see the principal. That’s what happened.”

The trip to the principal’s office was worth it for LeBron and the Cavs. They needed the win and that’s exactly what they got.
