Coach Frank Vogel said "we'll see" during Thursday's post-game press conference when asked about starting Roy Hibbert for Game 4 on Saturday.

He added he "probably" would start Hibbert, but the Pacers seriously have to consider making a change. The matchup against the Hawks and how they're being spread out has basically rendered Hibbert obsolete. Plus, it doesn't help he's shot a pathetic 18 percent in the paint over his last nine games, which doesn't even make sense. He has completely lost his confidence and there is a legitimate chance he gets bumped to the second unit.
DeAndre Jordan grabbed 22 boards against the Warriors during Thursday's Game 3 98-96 win to go with 14 points and five blocks in 35 minutes.
His 22 boards and five blocks matched franchise playoff records and he has been unbelievable in the paint this season. Jordan had a stretch of 22 consecutive games with at least 10 boards and one block this season, which is the second longest in NBA history behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 24. Chris Paul and Blake Griffn get a ton of press, but Jordan's improved play has gone a long way to the Clippers' success.
Blake Griffin scored a game-high 32 points during Thursday's 98-96 win over the Warriors to go with eight boards, three assists, two steals and one block in 44 minutes.
He shot just 2-of-9 from the line and the Clippers made just 10-of-23 as a team, but that was really their only major negative. Interestingly, they shot better from the field at 46.5 percent than they did at the line at 43.5 percent. Griffin has almost been unstoppable and became the first Clipper since Elton Brand in 2006 to score 30 points in back-to-back games.
