INDIANAPOLIS -- Myles Turner is really making himself liked by Pacers fans lately.
Over the past nine games, he's averaged almost 17 points and seven rebounds. He's scored in double figures in eight of those games, and has played almost 30 minutes per game.
But none of those things are as exciting or memorable as what he did Monday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James.

With about four minutes left in a two-point game, James drove to the rim, slicing through defenders and went up for a dunk. Turner met him at the rim and blocked the shot.
And no, we don't know what announcer Quinn Buckner means by "Smothered chicken."
James did get the last laugh, though. The Cavs beat the Pacers in overtime, 111-106.
