Video: Myles Turner Denies LeBron James At The Rim

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana Pacers rookie Myles Turner showcased his defensive ability late in the fourth quarter against the Cavaliers, viciously rejecting LeBron James's attempted dunk:

There is no denying that Turner has been playing out of his mind as of late, tallying 14 points and 10 rebounds in his second career start for the blue and gold.

Nothing mattered in the end however, as the first-seeded Cavaliers would go on to defeat the Pacers 111-106 in overtime.

Speaking of seeding, the loss tonight to the Cavaliers keeps Indiana as the eighth-seeded team in the East at 25-23. If one thing is definite, it is the fact that the Pacers continue to keep squandering their opportunities towards the final moments of close games.

But there is a bright side to everything, and that bright side is Turner's upside.
