    Also set the new Indiana Pacers franchise record with 12/12 from the field. Previous was 10/10 by some guy in the 80s.

    Will he be the most successful ZAG to play NBA as a big man? KO, Sacre, Collins, Ammo? He seems to be getting comfortable with his role as a scoring leader with the Pacers.

    Sabo is having another very good game tonight vs Houston. It’ll be interesting to see how the Pacers will juggle the minutes between Domas and Turner going forward. Does Sabonis have a shot at sixth man of the year?

    Here's a fun article about Sabonis, including videos:

    Domantas Sabonis is making the most of every inch of his sculpted frame. While on the floor, the Lithuanian center has rebounded over 12 percent of Indiana’s misses — one of the best marks in the league among players averaging at least 20 minutes per game — and he’s gone 7-of-10 on putbacks.

    But his work on the offensive glass is only partially responsible for the field day he’s had thus far around the basket. Feasting on hard screens, dives to the rim, drop-off passes, and post-ups, Indiana’s other 22-year-old center is one of only five players who have shot above 75 percent in the restricted area on at least 45 attempts.

    That’s a tall man doing tall man things at an incredibly efficient rate without playing much above the rim or spreading the floor (see: scoring 30 points in 21 minutes against the New York Knicks without a single shot taken outside the paint, nor a miss).

    Yet, even while firing on all cylinders, some of his most eye-popping moments over the first 10 games of the season have come on plays when he’s played big without being confined by his size, toggling with ease between judiciously handling the ball and exerting brute strength.

    Sabonis just posterized Joel Embiid on Espn. Please someone post this video clip.

    I’ll try

    I know he used his off arm to seal Embiid, but I still loved it. You can't really posterize Embiid without a little something something

    Domas with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists in just 26 minutes off the bench.
    Had the game been closer he’d have probably completed the triple double.

    He's also the current leader in votes for the Lithuanian Basketball Player of the Year award Looking at the gap between him and Jonas Valanciunas, Domas is almost sure to win it.

    Domas doing great.
    Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Posts double-double in 31 minutes

    by RotoWire Staff

    Sabonis registered 14 points (7-14 FG), 16 rebounds, and two assists in 31 minutes Friday as the Pacers topped the 76ers.

    Sabonis is a throwback big who cleans up around the rim and take's advantage of every opportunity that comes his way. He isn't the most explosive athlete but his finesse and technicality have made him one of the most efficient scoring bigs in the NBA. Entering tonight, Sabonis was averaging a staggering 20.6 points, 14.1 rebounds, and 4.5 assists on a per-36 minute basis. He is only averaging 8.7 shots per game, but he is connecting on 63-percent of his attempts from the field. The third-year big is the top bench option on a deep Pacers squad, and it's reasonable to expect that there is more production to come should an opportunity for more minutes ever present itself.
