Myles Turner dunked so hard on Tristan Thompson on Thursday night.
We all know that Myles Turner is one of the bright young stars in the NBA, and what’s scary is that he’s only going to get better with time. What’s also a plus for him is that he’s getting some playoff experience under his belt early, which is never a bad thing.
On Thursday night he’s getting more of that experience as the Indiana Pacers try to get a win in Game 3 over the Cleveland Cavaliers, and boy did he ever make an impact early on in this one. As a matter of fact, Turner provided one of the highlights of these NBA Playoffs that will definitely be played over and over and over again for some time to come.
Early in the second quarter of this one, Turner attempted a mid-range jumper that was just a bit off the mark. However, he would use a little hustle to grab his own rebound. What happened next, though, was the real highlight of the play.
You see, after Turner grabbed the rebound, maybe so angry from the miss he just had, he proceeded to attempt to end the life of Tristan Thompson right at the basket.
Yeah, Thompson is is not going to want to watch that replay in the film room. Maybe take a break, go get a drink, call Khloe or something. That’s a moment in his career that he will wanna block out of his memory by any means necessary.
Just add this to the list of ridiculous highlights for Myles Turner as his bright young career moves along.
