Oh, nothing to see here. Just Myles Turner throwing down a mind-blowing dunk over Tristan Thompson.

In the second quarter in Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday, the second-year Indiana Pacers center pulled off one of the most memorable plays of the season. Which was great for Turner, but humiliating for Thompson.

After missing a mid-range jumper over Kevin Love, Turner collected the offensive rebound, launched into the air, unloaded a one-handed dunk, and put Thompson on the first poster of the 2017 playoffs.

The internet, predictably, lost its collective shit. 

My heart rate is still elevated from that Myles Turner dunk. Could be permanent. It was worth it.
