For weeks the demise of the Indiana Pacers had puzzled many and despite many feeling that there was a locker room issue it wasn't known for a fact until last evening when YahooSports reported the following:  Lance Stephenson and Evan Turner got into a fight a day before the Pacers lost game 1 to the Atlanta Hawks.

Two Indiana Pacers dragged a cursing, cut Evan Turner out of the Bankers Life Fieldhouse court, untangling him from a practice-floor fistfight with teammate Lance Stephenson.
Turner hadn’t been the first Pacer to lose his temper with Stephenson these tumultuous several weeks, and Stephenson’s relentlessly irritable nature suggests Turner won’t be the last. These scrapes aren’t uncommon in the NBA, but this confrontation had been weeks in the making and that reflected in the ferocity of the encounter, sources told Yahoo Sports.
