    Default Good game for Sabonis

    19 7-7 0-0 2-3 4 3 7 1 0 0 1 3 -4 16

    19 minutes off the bench, didn't shoot any threes, 7 for 7 from the floor, 7 boards , 1 assist 1 TO.

    Good start for a power forward!

    Nice that they're actually trying to utilize him properly.

    Pacer fans are really high on him.
    Most think he will be starting later in the year once Thad Young is traded.

    Another good game. A double double on 7-7 shooting!

    From Zach Lowe's like and don't like column, my own emphasis added:

    9. Domantas Sabonis, being mean

    Would you look at what happens when a large human with some skill does more than stand around the arc delivering dribble handoffs and trembling in fear of missing any shot off a pass from Russell Westbrook!

    Sabonis has rediscovered the paint, and he's cramming all over fools. He dunked 15 times all last season; he's up to four after just five games in Indy. Sabonis has effectively played center next to Thaddeus Young and T.J. Leaf while Myles Turner recovers, and those guys cede the lane to him. He's slinking into open space on the pick-and-roll, and making plays -- short jumpers, and mean-spirited drives to the rim. He's shooting 58 percent!

    The go-go Pacers zoom into side pick-and-rolls before the defense can gird itself to keep Darren Collison and Victor Oladipo from slicing into the middle, and bouncing easy pocket passes to Sabas:


    Hanging around the rim has reawakened Sabonis' offensive rebounding; at this rate, he'll grab more before Thanksgiving than he did all of last season.

    There are downsides, of course. Almost any lineup with Sabonis at center will struggle on defense; the Pacers rank 29th in points allowed per possession. He has played only five minutes alongside Turner -- all in the ludicrous speed opener against Brooklyn -- and it's unclear how those two fit. They each shoot well enough to make it work on offense, but juggling assignments on the other end might be tricky.

    Still: Indy has to be thrilled with the early-season play of the Paul George return.

    Here is a cool interview with Domas by someone from their broadcasting team:

    Another good game by Domas, double/double with 22 and 12.

    Followed online. When Domas was in, the pacers pulled away. When he went out, the Spurs caught up and finally passed the Pacers. They left Domas in and pulled out the win. Had 2 assists officially and at least 2 blocks.

    Wow. Good stuff. Happy for Domas that he's found such a good fit with the Pacers.

    Maybe he's better than Eric Mika after all.

    Twitter is fun today, with everyone stunned by Domas' performance. I liked this one:

    Replying to @FredKatz

    Is it fair to argue that the Thunder misused Sabonis last year based on what we have seen this season?

    Sabonis oozing confidence! Westbrook a great talent but takes up a lot of oxygen. Oladipo and Sabonis breathing and playing much easier with Pacers.
    “I don’t expect us to be perfect anytime soon,” guard Silas Melson said, “but one thing I do expect is trying to get better every day and playing tougher, harder and more physical than the opponent.”

    Another nice night. 12 p 16 r 5a

    At this rate... I’m beginning to think the Pacers pulled a fast one on the Thunder who had no clue how to use Sabonis

    Totally agree! He's averaging a double/double.

    And he can hit the occasional three!

    Sabonis and oladipo were good value for PG. A steal if he only stays at OKC for one year. However, a bit concerned about his production when turner is back and healthy.

    No mention of DS in the Pacer vs Piston box score? This seems pretty unusual...thinking way out of the box, but could he have been traded - under the table so to speak?

    Bruised calf, DNP on ESPN. Nothing more than an injury. With Turner back, they have the luxury of sitting 'Don't Miss'.
