This outfit was much more than just the first thing Myles Turner saw hanging in his closet. Turner wore the jersey into Philly to make sure the fans remembered what happened last Sunday. The Dallas Cowboys took down the Eagles in overtime on Sunday night and took a two-game lead in the division standings.
Despite their many struggles the Cowboys have endured this season, they’re in excellent position to win the division. Although Philly has a Super Bowl win under their belt, losing the division to their bitter rivals will still sting.
Myles Turner is hoping the Pacers can do the same thing the Cowboys did to Philly. Indiana is having a really good year despite flying under the radar. Even with Oladipo sidelined for much of the early season, the Pacers are 18-10 and sit a half game behind the Sixers for second place in the Eastern Conference.
A win on Friday would be a statement victory for the Pacers and it would put the rest of the East on notice. Everyone is talking about the Sixers, the Toronto Raptors, the Boston Celtics, and even the Milwaukee Bucks. But the Pacers represent the dark horse that could shake up the power balance in the conference.
