December 28 - January 11
Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers: 15.0 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 3.0 APG through 39 games
December 7th against the Kings was the last time Sabonis didn’t score in double figures. Also, Domas just started his 3rd game of the year against the Cavaliers. As a starter, he averages 16.7 PPG and 12.0 RPG. That’s nice and all but lets keep him in that sixth man role so he can win the award at the end of the season.

Textbook up-and-under from Domantas Sabonis. The extra dribble he performed during his spin move let him set his pivot in a perfect position, and his step through created a ton of space: pic.twitter.com/RpRbWcwCdc— Pacers Film Room (@PacersFilmRoom) January 11, 2019
Zach Collins, Portland Trail Blazers: 7.3 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 0.8 BPG through 42 games
The big man was trending on Twitter after his teammate, CJ McCollum, used meditation to calm him down after he fouled out. Collins, relax and find your zen. Pretty funny stuff.

Kelly Olynyk, Miami Heat: 9.4 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 1.9 APG through 39 games
Olynyk was also sort of trending on Twitter due to his reaction to Tyler Johnson’s tongue injury. Gonzaga basketball players are just a funny bunch of dudes, aren’t they?

Johnathan Williams, South Bay Lakers: 15.9 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 1.2 BPG through 21 games
After being called up for one game and seeing no time on the court, JW3 was sent right back down to the South Bay Lakers. At least he can get buckets in the G-League.
Isaac Bonga has been assigned to South Bay, while Johnathan Williams has also rejoined the team as part of his two-way @Lakers contract.— South Bay Lakers (@SouthBayLakers) December 31, 2018
