Indiana Pacers: 3 Ways Myles Turner Must Improve in 2018-19

Attack the Glass

Another source of frustration for Pacers’ fans has been Turner’s production on the glass. He has a lot of work to do on his rebounding, especially on the defensive end of the court. Fans gave him too much criticism for the lack of rebounding, but it is an area that could use improvement.

Turner ended up averaging 6.4 rebounds per game last season. That number is respectable, but a 6-foot-11 big man with the kind of athleticism that Turner possesses should be corralling more rebounds.

Part of the issue will be fixed by simply focusing on boxing out. There were quite a few instances last season where Turner’s man would simply push his way past Turner. If he boxes out a little better, those rebounds will end up on his stat line instead of going against him.

Offensively, Turner has done a solid job. He averaged 1.4 offensive rebounds per game last season. Shoring up defensive rebounding would take Turner’s numbers to a completely new level.
