Sabonis put in 15 points (5-11 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 26 minutes during Thursday's 110-100 preseason victory over Houston.
Sabonis, along with TJ Leaf, took full advantage of no Clint Capela (foot) to dominate the glass on both ends of the floor. Sabonis looks to be in excellent shape and comes into the season looking to build off his impressive 2017-18 campaign. There has been talk that the coaching staff would like to play him alongside Myles Turner some more and figure out a way to get him on the floor. He is more of a late-round guy at this stage but can offer some nice big-man stats at the end of drafts for owners in need of such production.
Sabonis tallied 10 points (3-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and five rebounds across 26 minutes during Indiana's 105-101 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
Sabonis' scoring total led the bench and represented his fourth consecutive double-digit scoring effort to close out the series. The 21-year-old took double-digit shot attempts in all of those contests and played well over 20 minutes in the last five games against the Cavaliers overall. Sabonis' numbers were significantly improved across the board this season over those of his rookie campaign in Oklahoma City, as he finished with 11.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 24.5 minutes over 74 games (19 starts). Given his subsequent performance in the postseason, expectations for Sabonis will be elevated heading into the 2018-19 season.
Sabonis finished with 19 points (9-11 FG, 1-2 FT), and six rebounds in 22 minutes during Friday's 121-87 victory over the Cavaliers.
Sabonis had another strong offensive outing Friday, racking up 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting. The Pacers bench lacks scoring punch and Sabonis has done a nice job of picking up the slack throughout the series. He will need to deliver yet again if the Pacers hope to steal Game 7 in Cleveland on Sunday.
Sabonis notched 22 points (8-12 FG, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 98-95 loss to the Cavaliers.
Sabonis has now recorded a team-high scoring total in each of the last two games, as he has been picking up the slack that Victor Oladipo has dropped for the Pacers. After his Game 4 outburst, Sabonis was rewarded with over 30 minutes of court time off the bench, and that trend shouldn't change in Game 6 as the Pacers search for offensive answers.
