Myles Turner says ‘East is in trouble’ as Victor Oladipo returns in Pacers’ big win over Bucks
Myles Turner and the Indiana Pacers were happy to welcome star shooting guard Victor Oladipo back to the lineup against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. It was a game the team viewed as a measuring stick to see just how far they had come since the second game of the season. In that game, the Bucks were able to knock the Pacers off and showed them quite a few holes in their game plan.
Against the Bucks the second time around, however, the Pacers were able to dominate the game from start to finish. Indiana ended up winning the game by a final score of 113-97.
Following the big win, Turner stopped in on Oladipo’s interview and stated that the Eastern Conference was in trouble. Take a look at the video for yourself:

Turner has been turning his season around over the last few games. Against the Bucks, he ended up scoring 23 points while shooting 9-for-22 from the field overall and 4-for-6 from behind the 3-point arc. He also racked up seven rebounds, four assists, and three blocks in the game.
Oladipo, on the other hand, scored 12 points in his return to the court to go along with 10 rebounds and six assists.
Indiana is now 18-10 on the season and currently fourth in the Eastern Conference. Now that Oladipo is back and the team is stronger than ever after having to play without him for a few weeks, the Pacers are going to be an extremely tough team to beat.
It will be interesting to see how the team plays over the next few weeks. Turner and Oladipo playing at the top of their potential will take the Pacers to the next level. Perhaps Indiana could end up competing with the Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, and Philadelphia 76ers when everything is said and done.
