JaKarr Sampson played 17 minutes off Indiana's bench on Sunday.
Sampson scored nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with three boards, two steals and one block, and appears to have the inside track as a backup center. The Pacers are basically committed to playing small while Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) and Goga Bitadze (knee) are unavailable, so Sampson slots in as a makeshift center. T.J. Leaf is another option but he got only six minutes on Sunday, and appears to be lower than Sampson in the pecking order. Jul 26 6:42 pm (EST)
