So that’s why they gave Roy Hibbert all that money. For games like this. For series like this. For days when he can stand like a sentry at the basket, blocking shots, altering shots, frustrating Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith, being the biggest of all the big men in the Pacers tough, immaculate 102-95 Game 1 victory over the New York Knicks.
“That’s a big reason why we (paid him all that money),” coach Frank Vogel said. “… He’s one of the best rim protectors in the game. He’s really grown and learned how to understand angles and getting no calls, playing without fouling and staying in the game. All the analytics say he’s the toughest guy in the league to score against at the rim.”
