Caris LeVert Returns Saturday Against the Phoenix Suns
The Caris LeVert return is something the Pacers and the fan base have been hoping for. In the massive trade that sent James Harden to the Nets, Caris LeVert was also sent to the Pacers and Victor Oladipo to the Rockets.
The trade led to us finding out that Caris LeVert had a small mass on his left kidney. A 2nd round pick was added to the deal, and the Pacers still made the deal to bring in LeVert.
Caris LeVert Return: What to Expect?
In Caris LeVert return I see him coming off the bench and playing 6-8 minutes each half. Getting a nice little run and getting the quarter breaks. LeVert will get some time working with the Pacers backups and hopefully get a favorable matchup against the Suns and start with some success in his first action in a Pacers uniform.
Pacers returned from All-Star Break against the Lakers
The Pacers were in action vs the Los Angeles Lakers in their first game back since the All-Star break. Unfortunately, it was not a happy return as the Lakers outscored the Pacers 34-21 in the fourth to secure the win after trailing by eight points going into the final period.
The Pacers had two players involved in the All-Star festivities as Domantas Sabonis competed and won the skills challenge, and this was his 2nd All-Star game. Cassius Stanley was also in the dunk contest.
Here is a look at Cassius Stanley‘s dunk that they only gave a score of 44. I think it rattled the young man, as he clearly thought it deserved a 50 to start the night.
