The Indiana Pacers finally snapped out of their funk last night against the New Jersey NetsRoy Hibbert showed what he is capable of doing, as long as his confidence is there.  Hibbert and Brook Lopez had a nice battle in the post, but the difference was the help outside of those two...Hibbert had help, Lopez did not.  Travis Outlaw was the only other double digit scorer, with 12, for the Nets.  For further review of the game, check out Nathan's breakdown.

While the Pacers' confidence received a much needed boost, the Chicago Bulls will look to tear it right back down.  Derrick Rose had a great game last night, driving his team to a W against the Orlando Magic.  Rose will get his points and have his impact on the game, but the Pacers will have to try to slow down the other weapons on the Central Division leading Bulls.

It would be huge if Hibbert gets back on track for the rest of the season.  He doesn't need to dominate (although, I would be OK with that), but he needs to be a consistent presence down low in the post.  Look for him to take advantage of his size against the smaller Chicago Bulls front court.

After the jump check out the links of the day, including former Pacers Shawne Williams getting into it with Marvin Williams...

Indiana Pacers red hot from field, bury Nets 124-92 as Mike Dunleavy scores 30 points
The Nets were in a groove and in a place that had everybody excited about life without the Carmelo Anthony trade drama. Then they ran into a team that couldn't miss. Good will was deflated in a matter of 48 minutes.
