I’m expecting 50 points from Myles Turner in his next game. He scored 10 in 18 minutes on Friday and a career-high 25 in 29 minutes on Sunday. So if he gets to play 40 minutes in the Pacers next game, he should be able to double his scoring output again and go for 50. Right?
I’m obviously kidding, but Turner was unstoppable against the Nuggets and made a few FanDuel players really, really happy when he put up 25 points on 11 of 13 shooting, grabbed 7 boards, dished out 2 assists and blocked 2 shots in just 29 minutes of action – while costing peanuts. If you aren’t familiar with FanDuel, I’m calling him the steal of the day. And one day, Indiana fans might be calling him the steal of the NBA draft.
Am I over exaggerating or getting a little too high just off of 1 game? I don’t think so. I think the 6’11 big man has the potential to be LaMarcus Aldridge on the offensive end and DeAndre Jordan on defense.
