On Thursday, rookie sensation Myles Turner turned 20 years old and became the first Pacers rookie with a 20 point/15 rebound games since the Rifleman, Chuck Person, did it way back in 1987 – 9 years before Myles was born.
Turner scored a game-high 24 points on 11 of 17 shooting, grabbed a career-high 16 boards and swatted 3 shots in just 33 minutes during the Pacers 92-84 win over the Pelicans.
“I was really trying to get 20 points and 20 rebounds,” Turner said. “The big thing for us tonight was that we knew they were short-handed but, because of that, we also knew we had to match their intensity and get this win.”

He didn’t get his 20/20 on his 20th birthday but I guarantee by the time he can legally drink, he will have at least 1 20/20 game, a 40 point game and I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up with a 10 blocks performance too.
