Which Front Court Shows up for Indiana?

How does 7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert score 0 points four different times in one post-season? Maybe his team just isn't getting him the ball. In Game 4, he attempted just one shot in the 1st quarter. During Game 3 though, the Pacers ran the ball through Hibbert, getting him six shots in the opening period. Not only did this allow the big man to score 16 points in the contest, but it gave Indiana another half-court option when their offense inevitably went stale.

On the other side of the court, the Heat are looking thin across the front-line. Chris "Birdman" Andersen couldn't play in Game 4 due to a deep thigh contusion. Luckily for them, Chris Bosh dominated last game, but he generally struggles against Indiana's length. If Andersen can't go, look for the Pacers to attack the glass all night.

All of that said, if LeBron decides he wants to close out the series tonight, good luck to anyone in his way. Let's see if the king can get one step closer to retaining his crown. Download SnapCall on the App Store and Google Play, make your picks for tonight, and join in the fun at 8:30pm!
