CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Lance Stephenson said someone needs to 'tame' LeBron James and he knows just how he's going to do that in Game 3.

First of all LeBron's postseason stats have been quite impressive so far. In the first two games he's averaged 28.5 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 2 blocks.

So just how in fact does Lance Stephenson plan to slow James?

In an interview with USA Today the Pacers Forward said, "You just gotta tame him. He’s playing so well right now. His jump shot has really improved. Just gotta get into him, make him pass the ball. Make his teammates make decisions."

Hmmm, so he's going to tame LeBron? Yea, good luck with that!

Whatever his plan may be -- we just hope it doesn't involve blowing in his ear again... 

*Remember the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals between the Heat and Pacers...well it was during that series that Lance Stephenson did whatever he could to get under LeBron James' skin. 

Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals are tonight in Indiana. The Cavs are up 2-0 in the series.
