Roy Hibbert said coach Frank Vogel’s game plan was a reason why he went scoreless in the Indiana Pacers’ Game 4 loss to the Miami Heat on Monday.

Hibbert took just four shots, missing them all, and was in foul trouble in the Heat’s 102-90 victory.

It was the fourth time in the playoffs and the sixth time in his last 21 games Hibbert did not score a point. He did have five rebounds and a shot block.

“The game plan really wasn’t to utilize me as much; I’m just trying to be effective as I can,” Hibbert said. “Would I like a little bit more touches early on? Yeah. But that’s how the cookie crumbles sometimes.”
