Myles Turner’s Game Has Evolved. The Box Score Doesn’t Know It Yet.

Five nights into the NBA season, when the Pacers dismantled the Chicago Bulls, a number of Indiana players left their imprint on the contest.Former Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon finished with 18 points and six assists.

Warren, continuing , managed to outscore everyone, logging a game-high 23 points.Far less distinguishable in the lopsided box score that evening was center Myles Turner, who...
