Roy Hibbert hit 7-of-13 shots for 16 points, but added just two rebounds and zero blocks in Saturday's loss to the Heat.

Hibbert was great in Game 2, with 12 points, 13 rebounds, a block and eight offensive rebounds, but never got it going on the glass tonight. Chris Bosh was terrible for the Heat tonight, which helped the Pacers stick around after they blew a 15-point lead, but Hibbert's ineffectiveness in the paint is a big problem for the Pacers right now.

Roy Hibbert hit 5-of-9 shots for 12 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and a block in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Heat.

He may have tweaked his left knee at one point during the game, but played through it. He also hauled in eight offensive rebounds, while this was his first double-digit rebounding performance of the playoffs. Hibbert is a big reason the Pacers were in this game until the end and they'll need him to keep playing well with the series heading to Miami on Saturday.

Roy Hibbert scored 19 points with nine boards, three assists and one block in 39 minutes vs. the Heat on Sunday.

The Heat didn't respect his offensive game much and he was able to get terrific position deep in the paint. All but one of Hibbert's five makes came at the rim, but he did shoot just 1-of-7 from beyond two feet today. He played well on defense and he's been able to string together some positive outings, averaging 13.0 points, 6.4 boards and 2.0 blocks over his last five. The All-Star was an absolutel monster vs. Miami in the playoffs last year with 22.1 points per game, so he'll continue to be a huge factor in this series.

The Pacers grabbed a franchise-low 23 rebounds in Tuesday's Game 5 defeat, leading coach Frank Vogel to question his team's effort.

"We didn't hit them, we didn't hold them off the glass," Vogel said. "We didn't purse like we normally pursue and it was costly." David West led his team with six rebounds, but starters Lance Stephenson, Paul George and Roy Hibbert combined for only three rebounds in 92 minutes of action. "We didn't show up to play," West said. "We relied on one guy to rebound or two guys to rebound and that's not who we are." The Pacers will need to quickly move on from this franchise-worst performance on the glass with Game 6 looming in Washington on Thursday.

Roy Hibbert continued his streak of solid games with 17 points, nine rebounds and two blocks during Indiana's 95-92 road win on Sunday.

Hibbert's 39 minutes of action marked his highest playing time since early February and his resurgence has given the Pacers a palpable lift, as they head home with a commanding 3-1 lead in their second-round series. Ian Mahinmi played only five minutes off the bench and Luis Scola went scoreless in eight minutes, but starting PF David West added 14 points, three rebounds, eight assists in 44 minutes.

Roy Hibbert said on Friday that he was thankful for the advice from his former coach John Thompson III.

"He just told me how to work on positioning and bending my knees a little bit more," Hibbert said. "Things that a good coach sees the small details in. I'm very appreciative of him taking the time." The Pacers gave him the ball much more and he lucked into some more rebounds on his way to 28 points and nine boards on Wednesday. Interestingly, Hibbert has grabbed just 46.7 percent of his rebound chances in the playoffs, which doesn't even rank in the top 160 for all players in the postseason. Meanwhile, Marcin Gortat leads the postseason with contested rebounds per game. A lot of eyes will be on Hibbert tonight.

Roy Hibbert looked like a new player during Game 2's 86-82 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, making 10-of-13 from the field for 28 points with nine boards, one assist, two blocks, no turnovers and two fouls in 33 minutes.

He has deservedly received more criticism than almost any big man in recent memory and was coming off a no-point, no-board game on Monday. Ten of his 13 shots came in the paint and seven of his 10 makes came via an assist. The Pacers got more out of Hibbert than they could have ever imagined and the Wizards struggled offensively, so they still have their work cut out for themselves despite a four-point win. They'll look to take back home-court advantage in Washington on Friday.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel plans to run some plays for Roy Hibbert after calling his number "zero times" during a disastrous Game 1 loss to the Wizards.

"If Roy Hibbert's on the court it's because I think he can help us win the next possession, the next stretch of the game, and help us win that game," Vogel said. "I've got to get him some looks to help get him going some. Everybody has to understand, he wasn't 0-for-11, he was 0-for-2. He's the fifth option in our starting-five offense." All signs point to Hibbert remaining in the Pacers' starting lineup for Game 2 on Wednesday.

Roy Hibbert was pulled aside by his teammates after a horrendous Game 1 showing in Monday's loss to the Wizards.

Hibbert failed to score or record a rebound in 18 minutes during Monday's Game 1 loss to the Wizards and was pulled aside by David West and Rasual Butler. West declined to comment on the talk other than saying that Hibbert "has to be part of the fight." Paul George added his two cents, saying, "We're at the point where we really need Roy and we need him now." The struggling Hibbert gave his own take on the situation after the game, "I got to come out and be aggressive. I got to be a different Roy Hibbert than I have been. "I'm going to change some things up for the second game. I'm going to look within myself and go out there and figure it out." Indiana doesn't have much time to get things together as the they've already dug themselves a 1-0 hole heading into Wednesday's Game 2, but they'll need everything they can get from Hibbert.
