3 of 4
After losing starting center Salah Mejri in Game 4 to hip injury, Dallas turned to their original starting center to start the regular season in Zaza Pachulia.
Pachulia stepped right into the starting role with Dallas and logged major minutes alongside his German buddy. Even though he lacked the athleticism of the OKC frontline, Pachulia found ways to contribute.
Zaza finished the night with 12 points, 7 rebounds, and 9 assists.
