Domantas Sabonis was unstoppable on Saturday night, erupting for 28 points, 22 rebounds and four assists in 41 minutes. With this monster performance, Sabonis became the first Pacers player to record 20 points and 20 rebounds through three quarters since 1996-97, per ESPN Stats & Info. It was a historic night for the big man who went 12-of-24 from the field with the only downside being that the Pacers lost the game. What a game for Sabonis who currently ranks 41st in 9-cat.

Buddy Hield (right ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers. It's unclear whether this is a new injury he picked up Saturday vs. Portland, or a nagging ailment that has finally caught up to him. We suggest the latter scenario because it would help explain his brutal start to the season, with 34.8% shooting that's dipped to 30.9% in January. Check for an update on his status after Monday's shootaround. If Hield does miss any time, Glenn Robinson III should absorb most of his playing time.
