Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has never been one to publicly complain even when he had every right to stand on top of Bankers Life Fieldhouse, use the lungs in his 7-2 frame and yell, “Give me the damn ball.”
That’s not Hibbert’s style. He may drop some subtle hints with his body language when he has it going and then vanishes, as if the Pacers are playing 4-on-5 on the offensive end of the court.
That wasn’t the case against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.
The Pacers fed the big fella in the post or he pursued offensive rebounds and scored on putbacks.
Hibbert scored a season-high 27 points in Indiana’s 107-91 victory over the Timberwolves at the fieldhouse.
“Roy Hibbert was the star of the game, dominating on both ends,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “We didn’t really go to him more than we really do, especially with them fronting the post.”
Hibbert, an offensive disaster the first couple of months of the season, is in the midst of his best stretch.
