Myles Turner's 2021‑22 Season in Photos
1 / 15In his seventh NBA season, Pacers center Myles Turner started 42 games, averaging 12.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks per game while shooting 50.9 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from 3-point range. Turner's 2021-22 campaign got off to a strong start. He scored a career-high 40 points on 15-of-22 shooting (5-of-9 from 3-point range) while also tallying 10 rebounds and three blocks in the second game of the season on Oct. 22 in Washington. He then reached double figures in eight straight games from Oct. 30 - Nov. 13. He went 7-for-10 from beyond the arc and tallied 25 points, 13 rebounds, and three blocks in a win over New York on Nov. 3 and scored 20 points and swatted six shots in a victory over Philadelphia on Nov. 13. Turner missed just one of Indiana's first 43 games. He scored in double figures 27 times over that span, topping 20 points on six occasions. He collected nine double-doubles and blocked three or more shots 21 times. Unfortunately, Turner missed the final 39 games of the season, not playing after Jan. 14 due to a stress reaction in his left foot. His 2.8 blocks per game would have led the NBA in the category for the third time in the past four seasons, but he missed too many games to qualify for the league lead.
