Best Pacer Moments of 2013-2014: Roy Hibbert's Block On 'Melo


The 2013-14 Indiana Pacers’ season ended in flames, and the loss of Lance Stephenson may have made some fear that the team’s window for contention is over.

But that is the pessimistic perspective, and it loses sight of all the great moments that fans got to witness over the last year.

To help remember the good times, we’ll spend the rest of the summer looking back at some of the Best Pacer Moments of 2013-14.

On January 16th of this year, the Indiana Pacers steamrolled the New York Knicks 117-89. Even though Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points and grabbed 7 rebounds, the Pacers shut down everyone else and had six players in double figures. The game didn’t go without an extraordinary highlight.

Right before the end of the second quarter, Roy Hibbert ran over from the weak-side to block an open dunk attempt by Carmelo Anthony.

Where have we seen a similar Roy Hibbert block before?

Oh, I remember.
