His performance along with Lance Stephenson’s double-double 16 points and a career maximum of 14 assists helped the Pacers return to the victory box and break a series of six defeats.

At the beginning of this season, he had a triple-double with a career maximum of 25 rebounds. It can certainly be delayed, certainly on the list of eastern reserves, by inciting the Paceras in the next few weeks.

In the first returns from the NBA All-Star poll in 2022, Sabonis did not appear in the top 10 voters among the players on the front court of the East.
