To some, Saturday was just game No. 34 for the Indiana Pacers during their grueling 82-game regular season.
In the grand scheme, the Pacers -- especially center Roy Hibbert -- hope they can look back on Saturday as the night it happened.
It being the moment Hibbert regained his offensive touch in the post.
It being the moment that ended the questions about when Hibbert's play will match the money ($58 million) the Pacers are paying him.
You can only cross your fingers and hope.
Hibbert had his best game in almost two months when he scored 20 points, grabbed 15 rebounds, including a career-high 11 offensive boards, and blocked five shots in the Pacers' 95-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
"Roy was outstanding at both ends," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "His scoring has been sporadic and he's always trying to impact the game in other ways. Tonight it was offensive glass."
