Apparently this game was timed such that people inhabiting the country of “Lithuania” could watch it while they were actually awake instead of attempting (and failing) to watch it while they’re asleep. That’s what the Pacers commentators claim, anyway. Personally, the concept of time zones enrages and confuses me, and I refuse to acknowledge them. What time it is is what time it is. Straight up. We’re all on Earth, right? No one’s on Mars yet? So we should all have the same time, yeah? What sense is there making a complicated system where times change as you move around the surface of this godforsaken hell-sphere? Scientists cannot be trusted with making decisions for the good of humanity.
So, anyway, good thing “Lithuanians”, as they’re supposedly called, could watch Domantas Sabonis kick Hornet booty without having to wait for crappy highlights that purport to capture the whole experience but really don’t. There’s something to be said for enjoying a nice scoring performance like this while it happens instead of it flying at your face at a million miles per hour and finishing 2 or 3 minutes after it started.
I’m not saying to not watch this video. You should definitely watch this video. Sabonis hits a bunch of jumpers in it. You like jumpers, right?
