Turner generated eight points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and four rebounds across 25 minutes during Indiana's 105-101 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
Turner sported the lowest usage of the Pacers starting five by far, and his foul trouble also led to him logging the fewest minutes among the starters. The 22-year-old was as inconsistent in the series as he was during the regular season, posting four double-digit scoring efforts alongside three single-digit point tallies. Injuries cost Turner 17 games during the 2017-18 campaign, and he saw downturns in scoring, rebounding, blocks and steals over his totals of the previous season. Despite the underwhelming finish, Turner will look to take the next step in 2018-19 while also hoping for better health.
Turner compiled 12 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block in 27 minutes during Friday's 121-87 victory over the Cavaliers.
Turner was not at his best Friday but was able to contribute positively to the victory. He has not had the best series by any stretch of the imagination but this is in part due to the matchup. The Cavaliers run with a lot of small ball lineup which is not conducive to Turner's strengths, however, he is still likely to have a say in whether the Pacers are able to secure the win in Sunday's do-or-die encounter.
Turner pitched in 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal across 23 minutes during Indiana's 104-100 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
Turner saw the fewest minutes among the starting five by far due to foul trouble, but he was highly efficient with them. The third-year center has scored between 16 and 18 points in three of the first four games of the series, shooting between 58.3 and Sunday's 77.8 percent in those contests. The 22-year-old will look to offer similar contributions when the Pacers attempt to pull ahead in the series during Wednesday's pivotal Game 5.
Turner finished with 16 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 98-80 victory over the Cavaliers.
After a terrible finish to the regular season in which he scored in double-figures just once in his last 10 games, Turner had an impact in Sunday's crucial victory. He looked more engaged on the offensive end and while he only recorded one blocked shot, he was able to influence a number of others. He will look to keep things going on Wednesday in game two.
Turner posted two points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3 Pt), four rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal in 22 minutes during Friday's 92-73 loss to the Raptors.
One glance at the box score showed that the Pacers had no intention of overplaying their starters on Friday, and there's no sign that this will change for Indiana's final two games. With Friday's results in mind, playing Turner or any starter in DFS over the next few days is ill-advised.
