Sweet Jesus! Roy Hibbert Dominating NBA Preseason

Roy Hibbert had 27 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Pacers to a 128-124 overtime preseason victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night.

27 points and 16 rebounds.  27 points and 16 rebounds.  27 points and 16 rebounds.  Dudes, that's like Dwight Howard numbers.

Our friends at Indy Cornrows are already raving at the development that Hibbert has displyed entering his third year in the NBA, a similar development pattern that he showed while at Georgetown:

Confidence is a fragile thing with Roy, so it was especially nice to see him not only put up big numbers last night, but make plays late in the game and in overtime to help the team win.

Being lighter and fit will help Hibbert be able to play more minutes, not to mention take a little pressure of his knees for the long-term injury outlook. He may still need to adjust to the physical play against some of the stronger posts in the league, but he also has the ability to force opponents to adjust to his game. He just needs to keep the confidence up and attack like he did last night.

Big night for Big Roy.
