Indiana Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle marveled at the uniqueness of New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson when applauding Myles Turner’s defense/rim presence following Wednesday’s 123-114 home win (23 points/3 rebounds/4 assists/10-20 FG/1-2 3-PT/2-5 FT).

(via Indiana Pacers):

“Myles took the challenge, it’s a tough challenge. That is one physical force. That’s like Shaquille O’Neal playing point guard and has the quickness and the speed and the rim explosion and the passing and everything. So, he’s just a very unique player. I question whether we’ll ever see a guy quite like him again, he’s just very, very special. Game planning is like getting Rosetta Stone for two days and learning a new language. You’re doing things that your brain is not used to seeing, and to be able to just simply hold your own, you gotta have a lot of guts and a lot of wherewithal because it’s going to be a physical pounding. Myles did his job tonight.”
