Sabonis boomed for 16 points (5-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 25 rebounds, 10 assists and a block over 36 minutes during Monday's 100-98 loss to the Timberwolves.
Sabonis recorded the first triple-double featuring 25 rebounds since a man named Shaquille O'Neal did it in 1993. The Pacers squandered it however, blowing a double-digit lead in the third quarter and ultimately losing the game. Sabonis would likely be in the midst of a career-best season, but his usage rate is at its lowest since 2017-18, when he was only playing 24.5 minutes per game. A shift in utilization would propel him into the top echelon of fantasy performers
