Domantas Sabonis dished out a career-high 15 assists en route to his ninth triple-double of the season in a key 103 – 94 comeback win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Powered by Sabonis’ performance and some stunning defense in the second half, the Pacers got a victory that allowed them to clinch a spot in the Play-In tournament.

Sabonis put on his playmaker’s cape and had his 10th game with 10+ assists in 2020-21. He dropped all sorts of dimes from all over the place: After carrying the ball from one side of the court to the other, from spot positions, the top of the key or the low post.

And yes, in case you wondered,  some of those passes reminded the greatness of his father Arvydas.
