Video: Pacers’ Domantas Sabonis soars for one-handed slam dunk vs. Pistons

Sabonis has been playing really well this season. He’s averaging 20.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game while shooting 54.5 percent from the field, including 42.9 percent from beyond the arc. He’s stepping up in the absence of Myles Turner, who missed his fifth consecutive game because of a sprained right ankle.
If Sabonis remains consistent, he could become an All-Star this season, especially if he keeps producing those numbers when Turner and Victor Oladipo returns. He’s still just 23 years old, which means that he will still get better.
