Former Hoya Roy Hibbert Continues to Lead Indiana in NBA Playoffs

May 29, 2013

WASHINGTON - Former Georgetown University men's basketball All-American Roy Hibbert continued his standout performance in the NBA playoffs with 23 points and 12 rebounds in the Indiana Pacer's 99-92 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night in Indianapolis.

During the Eastern Conference Finals, which the Pacers tied at 2-all after the win last night, Hibbert has averaged 22.8 points and 12.0 rebounds.

He has scored at least 20 points and grabbed at least 10 rebounds in each of the last three games. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Hibbert is one of only two players in the NBA (joined by Dallas forward Dirk Nowtizki) to average at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in three-straight games against the Heat in the last three years.

Hibbert was interviewed after the game by TNT's Craig Sager. The video can be seen below.

ESPN Stats & Info referred to Hibbert as the team's Most Valuable Player in an article on ESPN.com.

Royce Young, an NBA writer for CBSSports.com, said, "Nobody was more dominant end-to-end than Indiana's lumbering big man. Nobody had more impact, more influence or more effect."

In USA Today, Sean Highkin wrote/a> that Hibbert has looked like the most important player on either team in the series.
