Roy Hibbert shuts down Carmelo Anthony dunk at the rim (VIDEO)

This is how you protect the rim.

The Knicks were just 8-of-17 inside the restricted area and shot 41.7 percent on the night inside 8 feet of the rim — that is the Roy Hibbert effect. He is the best in the game at altering shots in the paint.

Or just blocking you at the rim. Ask Carmelo Anthony. This is twice Hibbert has shut down an Anthony dunk, he did it during the playoffs last season as well.

The Pacers won Thursday’s game handily behind Lance Stephenson‘s 28 points.

    Melo didn’t seem to learn his lesson when he tried this last year.

    Melo is an overrated loser….. Dude will never win anything all the Knicks became is Denver east except a much crappy version of the nuggets

    Hibert timed that so perfect. What a natural reaction. Great basketball

    Tys-Cream Chandler would have broken his own pinky finger, been out for 3 weeks, come back, then miss 11 games after catching pink eye.

    Thanks Dolan, ruining the Knicks, and the Billion Dollar Comedy Club, formerly known as Madison Square Garden, since 1994.

    Go NY.
