ATLANTA (AP) - Fairly or not, Roy Hibbert has become the symbol of all that's wrong with the Indiana Pacers.
He hopes to turn that around Saturday, no matter what his role.
The 7-foot-2 center has struggled mightily in the first three games against the Atlanta Hawks, raising the possibility of coming off the bench in Game 4. The top-seeded Pacers are down 2-1 in the best-of-seven series and must steal a win at Philips Arena to avoid a mammoth upset.
Coach Frank Vogel won't say if he's planning to go with a smaller lineup that has proven to be more effective against the eighth-seeded Hawks. Hibbert says he's willing to do whatever is best for the team and is more concerned about stepping up his performance, either as a starter or backup.
