01:50 PM ET 05.12 | Pacers center Roy Hibbert has struggled with the pressures of signing a max contract, maybe, but his effort has never wavered. Neither has the belief in Hibbert from his teammates, even despite early-season struggles. The culmination of his work ethic was a 24-point, 12-rebound performance in a Game 3 victory against the New York Knicks on Saturday. "He never stopped," teammate David West said. "He's shooting. He's lifting weights. He's taking criticism. He was mature about it. He wasn't in denial about his play. He wasn't looking to blame the offense, the plays we were running. He took it square in the chest."

Is the bigger story the Knicks failure?

Not quite. Give Pacers their due. Hibbert has been a beast and their defense is what's causing fits to the Knicks.

In other words... He acted like a professional. Kudos!
