Sabonis started for much of the season, recording 81 games played, 66 starts, 1,632 regular season minutes, and plenty of post touches on the left block. Yet for all of those touches, there were few results. Sabonis shot only 39.9% from the field on the year, and looked more promising with his 32.1% three-point stroke than he did with his 37.1% shooting on hook shots.
