Domantas Sabonis last night approached three dungeons and after the match, he received beautiful words from the Indiana Pacers coach, Nate McMillan.
The Lithuanian team at 121: 94 beat Utah Jazz at home, even though he played without Victor Victor Oladipo. Last season, the Pacers lost all seven matches when they were supposed to be without the brightest stars.
D. Sabonis's great game has been one of the main reasons for ignoring the loss of V. Oladipo.
The center scored 26 points on 19 points (5/7 in 2, 2/2 in 3, 6/6 in.), Producing 9 goals and wasting 9 people. The last is a personal basketball record for the NBA.
In general, D. Sabonis has greatly improved this indicator. In this season, Lithuania carries 3.2 of the total scores, even though the average NBA career level is only 1.7.
After the match, Pacers coach N. McMillan was asked how much the life of the Pacers was facilitated by the fact that D. Saboni was a very good opportunity for his teammate.
"This is very important. This is a very important part of what we are trying to do. A lot of talk is the fact that he has to play with Myles Turner, but then we have to push him into a fourth position where the offensive tasks are different. as a center with lower players around him. So he can build our attack. Basket dometo IQ is very high. Passing when he reads the game helps the ball move from side to side, "said McMillan, a Lithuanian.
The coach's words explained that D. Saboni was one of the most important Pacers players, but would continue to emerge from the bench and M. Turner would remain the main center of the team.
