Paul George is the undoubted face of the Indiana Pacers franchise and although he is only 26-years-old, he has already attained superstar status.

PG13 returned from a career-threatening leg break to record a career-year last season, he returned to the Eastern Conference All-Star lineup and he donned the cover of NBA 2K17.

However, despite pouring in 25 points during the Pacers' 121-130 overtime win over the Dallas Mavericks, the small forward was outshone by another frontcourt youngster.

Myles Turner posted 30 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks during the contest and wrapped up the game for Indiana with a ferocious late dunk.

The sophomore is still only 20-years-old and at 6'11", he is going to be a huge problem for the rest of the NBA moving forward.

The Pacers made some decent moves in the offseason that has got many people speculating if they can become one of the Cleveland Cavaliers' main rivals in the east.

The additions of Jeff Teague, Al Jefferson and Thaddeus Young have made the Pacers significantly stronger, but the development of Turner has to be the most exciting prospect of all.

If George and Turner can continue to play off of each other like they did last night, good things will happen for Indiana this season.
