Monday Night

Pacers Final Score: Pacers Drop Jazz 97-86 - Indy Cornrows

Roy Hibbert returned to the lineup after missing the end of the Wizards game Saturday due to a bruised knee, and it's a good thing he did. Hibbert came out ready to play. In a first quarter where the team struggled, and shot 29.2 percent from the field, Hibbert would score 11 points keeping the Jazz lead at only 20-17.


One of the positive aspects of this season has been the reemergence of Roy Hibbert. Even though the team is not winning consistently he has been a completely different player than the guy that slumped towards the end of last season. He is playing fantastic defense, as usual, and is scoring better than ever. He finished with a season high 29 points, and also had 5 rebounds.Even if this season is lottery bound Hibbert regaining good form could be huge for his future with the Pacers.

Pistons vs. Bulls final score: Detroit downed again in the Windy City, 102-91 - Detroit Bad Boys
Greg Monroe had 16 points and 10 rebounds, but the Pistons lost to the Bulls in Chicago for the 16th time in 17 games.
