Roy Hibbert awoke from his slumber leading the Pacers to an 86-82 game 2 win over Marcin Gortat and the Washington Wizards.
This game was all about the bigs as Hibbert finished with a season high 28 points (10-13), 9 rebounds and 2 blocked shots.
Gortat countered with a monster game of his own with 21 and 11 including two exclamatory dunks on Mahinmi and Hibbert.
Indiana finally looked like the team from last year's Eastern Conference Finals that I predicted would win it all at the beginning of this season.
Still, Washington was in this game until the very end and are definitely for real.
Game 3 takes place Friday in our nation's capital @ 8 p.m. E.T.
