Sabonis Named Finalist for 6MOY Award 

Post#1 » by boomershadow » Sat May 18, 2019 11:10 pm

Pacers center Domantas Sabonis is a finalist for the Kia NBA Sixth Man Award, the NBA announced on Friday. Sabonis, a 6-11 center, is one of three finalists for the annual award. The other two finalists are both from the Los Angeles Clipper: Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams.

In his third NBA season and his second in Indiana, Sabonis appeared in 74 games in the 2018-19 season, coming off the bench in 69 of those contests. He averaged 14.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game, all career highs.

Sabonis led the Pacers with 30 double-doubles in the regular season, including 27 as a reserve, the highest total for any bench player in the NBA. He also set a franchise record with a .590 field goal percentage.

Well deserved for Sabonis, but I think Lou Williams will win it again.

In sort of related news, PG is a finalist for MVP after posting 28 ppg (2nd in the league), 8 rpg, 4 apg, 2 spg. Didn't see that coming.

PG was definitely a 2 way beast this year.

As for Dom, I think his hope to win is that LouWill and Montrezl split votes being teammates.

Unfortunately, I do think Sabonis is in distant 2nd for this award. Lou's got this in the bag, it seems.
