Myles Turner scored 22 points to go with 14 rebounds in the Pacers series ending loss to the Miami Heat on Monday night. Turner also had one steal and five blocks during the game.
Turner made his impact felt on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball on Monday night. Unfortunately it was not enough, as the Pacers were swept by the Heat in the game 4 loss. It will be interesting to see how the Pacers use Turner next season with the emergence of TJ Warren, but Turner's defensive production added to his offensive efficiency should allow him to remain as a consistent fantasy option.
Myles Turner produced 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-8 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocks and one assist across 38 minutes during Saturday's 124-115 Game 3 loss to the Heat.
Turner recorded his first double-double and now has 11 blocks across three games this series. The 24-year-old has also pulled down at least seven rebounds in his last five contests. With Domantas Sabonis (foot) sidelined, expect more of the same solid production from Turner this postseason. Game 4 of the playoff series is scheduled for Monday.
Myles Turner played much better in Game 2, scoring 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting to go along with eight rebounds, one steal, five blocks, three triples, and three turnovers in 33 minutes of action in a 109-100 loss to the Heat.
Turner scored just nine points on 4-of-11 shooting in Game 1, so he was able to turn it around some in Game 2. It wasn't enough however to help the Pacers get in the win column, as they drop another one to the Heat, who now take a commanding 2-0 series lead. Turner and the Pacers will look to get in the win column Saturday in Game 3.
Myles Turner fell just one point and one rebound shy of his 10th double-double of the season in Tuesday's loss. He went on to post nine points (4-11 FG, 1-2 FT, 0-3 3PT), nine rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 33 minutes of playing time.
Turner was held in check offensively on Tuesday, though fantasy owners have to be pleased with how active he was on defense, grabbing nine boards and swatting three shots. The 24-year-old big-man will have his hands full with Bam Adebayo's versatility throughout this series and will need produce more on offense in order for the shorthanded Pacers to have a shot.
Myles Turner posted a double-double Wednesday in 27 minutes of action, scoring 18 points (5-14 FG, 8-10 FT) with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, and two turnovers in 108-104 win over the Rockets.
Turner played much better tonight than he had in his previous two games where he averaged just eight points five rebounds per game. Surprisingly, Turner's double-double tonight was his since play resumed. He'll look to keep it rolling Friday against the Heat in a tune-up game before meeting them again in the first round of the playoffs.
