Going into this series we knew any chance the Pacers had rested on Roy Hibbert — the Heat had nobody who could match the size of Hibbert. That became especially true once Chris Bosh went down.
Above is a video (put together by NBA.com) of Hibbert’s considerable contributions to the Pacers Game 3 thrashing of the Heat — 19 points and 18 rebounds. Hibbert, like the Pacers, seems to be growing in confidence with every win against Miami. The Heat have tried Ronny Turiaf, Dexter Pittman, heck they’d probably give Alonzo Mourning another shot at this point.
Another game like that from Hibbert this weekend and this series will be all over but the shouting of Heat fans.
Chris Bosh with between-the-legs pass to cutting Dwyane Wade (VIDEO)
Miami is going to be a lot of fun to watch this season (if they can stay healthy).
They’ve got athletic, active players who want to run, who move off the ball, and they have good passers. For example, watch Chris Bosh go between the legs to Dwyane Wade in the Heat’s preseason game Sunday.
Bosh had 14 points, and Wade had a dozen, but Charlotte won the exhibition.
Blake Griffin pre-game dunk knocks down shot clock
The Clippers went north of the border to take on the Raptors in an exhibition game, but it was on the West Coast of Canada in one of the world’s prettiest cities — Vancouver. The two played at the Rogers Arena.
Where, they may want to upgrade the shot clocks behind the backboards. Watch over the shoulder of the Clippers announcers as Griffin dunks in warmups.
