Center Roy Hibbert was the Indiana Pacers' lone inside presence his first three seasons. That load eased substantially this season. Coach Frank Vogel said nearly half of the team's offense has been run through power forward David West in the post. West is averaging 16.8 points in their NBA Eastern Conference first-round playoff series against the Orlando Magic. West's offensive production has freed Hibbert to focus on defense. Hibbert has blocked 17 shots in the series, including a franchise playoff record of nine in Game 1. He also is averaging 11.8 rebounds a game.
