Who did you think would win a Roy Hibbert vs. Chris Bosh battle at the rim?

Even though they haven’t matched up directly all the time, Hibbert has owned the battle of the centers in this series. It’s not close. Bosh is supposed to provide scoring from the midrange and beyond, pulling the Indiana big men away from the paint on offense. Instead, we’ve seen a lot of Hibbert doing this to people and then him getting offensive rebounds at the other end. Bosh meanwhile was 3-of-7 in Game 5.

Miami did take Hibbert off the offensive glass more in Game 5 but it was a group effort, two and three guys going at him, not because of Bosh. One-on-one Hibbert is winning that battle.
