Player grades for the Indiana Pacers starters against the Wizards

Myles Turner: A

Myles Turner continued his impressive start to the season against the Raptors, turning in his third straight double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds while swatting a couple of shots and draining two out of three tries from downtown. A very good night overall for the big fella.

Jalen Smith: A-

Jalen Smith has had an up-and-down season so far despite his fine numbers, but this was definitely one of his better showings. Finishing with 16 markers, the big man managed to punish the Raptors multiple times from rainbow country with three triples.

Buddy Hield: A-

Save for his turnovers, Buddy Hield continued to make a strong case to remain on the team, sinking five out of 11 three-pointers and finishing the game with a team-high 22 points. By the way, has anyone noticed his rebounding spurt this season?

Andrew Nembhard: B+

Rookie Andrew Nembhard surprisingly drew another start against the lengthy Raptors. While he played just 22 minutes, the pesky floor general looked pretty solid overall, finishing with eight points and three assists on efficient shooting.
