Roy Hibbert Explains Dominance After Playoff Losses (VIDEO)

Roy Hibbert has been masterful this postseason in games following Indiana Pacers’ losses. Following Indiana’s 99-92 victory in Game 4 over Miami on Tuesday, Hibbert explained how he’s been so successful in the Eastern Conference Finals

“I think I’m just in the right place at the right time,” Hibbert said. “I’m just trying to be physical. I’m 275, I gotta throw my body around, you know, I’m just trying to do my part and create extra possessions. I just try to be tough. It’s a mental thing really.”

Hibbert was also dominant in games following a Pacers loss vs the Knicks and Hawks too. Following Indiana’s five total losses this postseason, Hibbert has averaged 22.2 points, 10.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. The Pacers are also 4-1 in those games.—Jake Fischer / @JakeLFischer

    He has the potential to be a great Center.

    “Well, i’m 7’2″ – 275lbs, and Erik Spoelstra has convinced their 6’10″ 230lb PF/C that he is a shooting guard, it’s easy to be dominant”

    Maybe it’s a little early to say so, but, seriously, Shaq may have been wrong when he said he was the LCL (last center left), given that Timmy is a 4. ( I’m not gonna start an argument about that, it’s another subject. ) All in all, I’ll looking forward to see TD and the former Hoya battle in a week or so…

    In 1996 he would have been serviceable. In this league he’s proving teams
    without true bigs are gambling on quickness.
