Taking Bad Schotz:
After watching Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the general public seemed to come away with the assumption that the Pacers had thrown their best punch at Miami. Although the Heat didn’t play their best game by far, Miami still walked away with the “W”. LeBron was not going to pick up two quick first quarter fouls ever again, and Indiana would not get a performance like they did from Paul George again, because LeBron would stop him right? And there is no way the Heat would allow themselves to get off to such a bad start and dig themselves an early hole…right? Wrong. Photo Credit: Andrew Innerarity / Reuters Frank Vogel, fresh off two terrible decisions to take rim-protector Roy Hibbert out of the game late in Game 1, got his troops ready to go for Friday night’s contest and no one saw it coming. The Pacers led at one point in the 1st quarter by 12 and the Heat were very lucky to come out of the period only down 6. Hibbert asserted himself quickly with 10 points and was able...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Indiana Pacers evened their Eastern Conference finals series with the Miami Heat Friday night with a 97-93 victory in Game 2. Pacers forward/guard Paul George, who scored 22 points and had six assists, credits playing as a team and not relying on one guy for the win. “Take nothing away from their
Poor Roy Hibbert, all he wanted to do was inbound the ball near the end of the first quarter during game two of the Heat/Pacers series.
Then, the below hilarity happens to the former big man of Georgetown:

After a Game 2 win and one possession away in Game 1 from being up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat, the Indiana Pacers’ “Big Five”confidence is sky high heading back to Indiana for Games 3 & 4.
According to ESPN:
“We’re not going to back down,” Roy Hibbert declared. “They could be the champs, but we’re coming for them.”
Game 2: Indiana Pacers 97, Miami Heat 93. Not the best night to be a mohawk wearing big man in Miami. Speaking of Birds, Larry sure did a fine job building the Pacers. Paul George is a star and Larry got him at #10 in the draft. Roy Hibbert was drafted at #17 (Yes I know Toronto technically drafted him, just like Boston technically drafted Jeff Green and the Suns technically drafted...
Roy Hibbert hasn’t had the most fun of days after the Pacers took a brutal loss against the Heat in game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals last night.
Now Hibbert has taken to twitter to put Shane Battier on blast for striking his knee into his crotch (video below).
U can knee or kick me every time u drive 2the rim. Ill be there 2protect the rim. That wasn’t inadvertent....
The Indiana Pacers let the Miami Heat off the hook in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and Pacers’ center Roy Hibbert is already complaining about foul play from one of the senior members of the Heat. Look, we are all for calling Shane Battier “Captain McMasterflop.” After all, Battier attended Flop U, and Coach K most likely shows highlights of Battier from his Blue...
On Saturday night, NBA fans were watching in laughter as Marc Gasol was hit in the face by his own pass off of Tim Duncan’s leg in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, and on Sunday night fans were treated again to a facial of a different variety. In the third quarter, Mario Chalmers [...]The post Mario Chalmers Throws Ball Off Of Roy Hibbert’s Head (Video) appeared first...
As I write this, I’m not going to hit anyone with journalist stats. I don’t want to use any jargon that may confuse anybody. I want this piece to be debated. I want barber shop talk off of this one. I’ll begin it simply by saying this; no matter what you think you may know about the Miami Heat, Paul George and the Indiana Pacers has his number. While I’ve said before, and...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer Deciding who plays, and when they don't, is one of the toughest parts of coaching.
Sometimes coaches stick with a player too long. Sometimes they have too much of a quick hook.
Indiana's Frank Vogel was still being criticized Thursday, long after he sent the Pacers out on the floor for the game's final possession...
Here, we see Roy Hibbert as Iron Man. Frank Vogel left him with a lot of time on his hands.
Hibbert Chillaxin, Pt 1
Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with a Shane Battier knee that landed in his sweet spot.

As a New York Knicks fan and a basketball fan, I’m constantly haunted by the 2009 Western Conference Finals. If you don’t remember, that’s the series where Denver nearly stole Game 1 in Los Angeles and then actually won Game 2, leaving everyone involved thinking “holy crap, Carmelo Anthony is making the leap...
What happened: A regular-season loss at Indiana woke up the Miami Heat. Maybe the same has happened with a playoff defeat to the Pacers.
After falling Feb. 1 at Indiana, the Heat reeled off 27 straight regular-season wins. On Sunday night, they bounced back from a Friday home loss to wallop the Pacers, 114-96, in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse...
Really, what can you say? This was just one of those games where you have no choice but to shake your head, acknowledge the supremacy of the Miami Heat, and move on. This was the kind of game that reminds you why the Heat are the reigning NBA champs, and why LeBron James is head and shoulders above everyone else in the league. It is the kind of game that reminds us that as the Pacers...
Western Conference Finals
San Antonio has reminded everyone that they are to be taken
seriously after jumping ahead of the Grizzlies 2-0 in the Western Conference
Finals. Memphis has been the
Cinderella story thus far but looked shell shocked in game one.
The Spurs jumped out 31-14 in the first quarter and never
looked back. Memphis ended up
losing 105-83 because...
