Myles Turner has been a revelation since returning to the court from injury in late December. The Indiana Pacers big man is making a midseason push for All-Rookie honors with every effortless jumper, canny interior finish, and high-level defensive play he makes on a nightly basis.
What’s been mostly absent over that wildly encouraging timeframe, though, are über-athletic plays like this one. We knew Turner could move for a seven-footer, but weren’t positive he could get up quite like this.
A two-handed jam from well outside the dotted line? This kid is going to be very, very good – and might be already.
