Roy Hibbert Dunks All over Ivan Johnson's Face

In the early stages of a surprisingly entertaining series Wednesday night, Hawks center Johan Petro whips his matador cape around a bit and puts some textbook "olé" defense on Roy Hibbert, letting him completely blow by as George Hill slides a pass down to him as he cuts on by.

All Ivan Johnson can do, standing helplessly in the restricted circle, is jam his eyelids closed, toss his hands up and hope that this doesn't end in exactly the way it looked like it would end.

Don't cry for Ivan Johnson. Thanks to Petro he was already dead, and everybody in the arena noticed it.

The huge slam created such an uproar that even the cotton candy guy had to take a break from being an adamant professional to turn around and take a look at the carnage, while the Pacers band went absolutely bonkers.

Strangely, this wasn't even the most amazing play Hibbert unleashed in the first quarter against the Hawks.

So it was a normal night for Hibbert, doing things on offense that electrified the crowd and sent Twitter howling.

I'm sure there are a ton more Hibbert posterizations and rain-inducing three-pointers on the way in this series.
