Indiana Pacers power forward Domantas Sabonis scored 36 points (13-of-21 field goals, 9-of-11 free throws) with 17 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, and 1 3-pointer in 45.6 minutes of a 134-128 overtime win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Sabonis set a season-high in points and recorded his third triple-double of the campaign while feasting on Minnesota's frontcourt.
