INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Myles Turner had a season-high 26 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks and Bojan Bogdanovic added 22 points Monday to help the Indiana Pacers stave off Washington's frenetic second-half charge for a 109-101 victory. Indiana extended its winning to streak to four straight, a season-best

The Indiana Pacers are showing their frontcourt is a force to be reckoned with, even without injured All-Star guard Victor Oladipo. Starting forwards Thaddeus Young and Bojan Bogdanovic combined for 38 points Saturday night in a 107-97 victory over the Sacramento Kings, while centers Myles Turner and Domantis Sabonis fortified the interior of Indiana's rising defense. Oladipo missed his 10th straight game.
Myles Turner scored 18 points as the Indiana Pacers handed Jim Boylen a losing start with the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. Boylen took over the head coaching duties with the Bulls on Monday after Chicago fired Fred Hoiberg.
The Indiana Pacers aren't picky or worried about style points. With All-Star guard Victor Oladipo out for an eighth straight game with a sore right knee, the Pacers will take wins, no matter how they come. Myles Turner matched his season high with 18 points and added 11 rebounds and five blocked shots as the Pacers defeated Chicago 96-90 on Tuesday night and spoiled the debut of new Bulls coach Jim Boylen.
