Domantas Sabonis dropped a team-high 26 points on Thursday helping the Indiana Pacers overcome the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The 22-year-old Lithuanian had an impressive showing, but the hosts needed Wesley Matthews to add two points with 1.8 seconds left to cap their rally from a 19-point deficit with the “W” that got them one step away from the playoffs.

Sabonis only scored 19 points in the first two games following his injury layoff, but finished with 7/12 from two-point range and 12/13 from the free-throw line on Thursday. He also had seven boards, four dimes and one block in 28 minutes of action.
