LOOK: Pacers' Myles Turner posterizes Cavs' Tristan Thompson, Twitter explodes
Turner showed no mercy while dunking on the Cavs' center
Myles Turner started the Cavaliers-Pacers opening round NBA playoff series with a couple of lackluster games. He made up for all of that with one play during Thursday's Game 3.
Turner sent the crowd and the internet into a frenzy when he collected the offensive rebound off his own miss, gathered himself and put the Cavs' Tristan Thompson on the first poster of the 2017 playoffs:
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
The Twitterverse did not hold back with its reactions, sending their condolences to Thompson and the Cavs.
To be fair, you can't really blame Thompson for trying to block the shot. Who you can blame, however, is Kevin Love for his terrible box out attempt. Hopefully Love buys Thompson dinner after the game to make up for the embarrassment.
