ATLANTA (AP) - Roy Hibbert is starting Game 4 of the NBA playoffs for the Indiana Pacers.
There was speculation that Hibbert might be benched so the Pacers could go to a smaller lineup against the Atlanta Hawks. But coach Frank Vogel announced before Saturday's game that his 7-foot-2 center would be starting.
The eighth-seeded Hawks lead No. 1 seed Indiana 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.
Hibbert has struggled to cope with an Atlanta lineup that is spreading the court and forcing him away from the basket, which also seems to be affecting his play at the offensive end.
He has only 25 points in the first three games and has yet to block a shot.
