Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert once again failed to show up in a Playoff game, laying an egg (0 points, 0 rebounds) in the 102-96 Game 1 loss to the visiting Washington Wizards. With even some former NBA players mocking Hibbert’s performance, his teammates David West and Paul George put the pressure on the big fella to bounce back, and very soon. Per the Indy Star and team website:

Center Roy Hibbert simply cannot end another game scoreless and with no rebounds like he did Monday for the third time in less than a month. The Wizards dwarfed the Pacers under the glass for a 65-46 rebounding advantage.

“We need him now,” Paul George said. “I have faith that along the way he’s going to find himself. But we’re at the point where we’re really going to need Roy and we really need him now.”
