Roy Hibbert Not Happy About Riding Pacers Bench

The Atlanta Hawks have pushed the Indiana Pacers to the brink of elimination, and Roy Hibbert is upset—not so much about possibly falling to the Hawks, but more about not being on the court while his team loses to the No. 8 seed. 

During Thursday's Game 6, NBA TV cameras caught a stone-faced Hibbert's non-reaction to Atlanta tying the game 61-61 late in the third quarter. Hibbert had played just six minutes at that point in the game.

Perhaps his brooding expression prompted Pacers coach Frank Vogel to insert Hibbert for the final minute of that quarter. He managed to miss a hook shot.  

When the Hawks claimed a 72-68 lead, a hawk-eyed cameraman zoomed in on Larry Bird's pained expression, though at least Hibbert was on the court when it happened.
