Blog Photo - Roy Hibbert blocks Carmelo AnthonyPacers big man (and occasional Parks and Recreation star) Roy Hibbert came up with the best moment of the weekend on Saturday night, when he blocked a Carmelo Anthony dunk attempt and helped the Pacers clinch their series against the Knicks.

Hibbert's play was a microcosm of the entire series. Carmelo and the Knicks tried to score, and the Pacers' stifling defense continued to shut them down.

Now, the Pacers will need plenty more huge plays like this from Hibbert as they prepare to face off with the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.

The Heat and the Pacers are two of the best defensive teams in the NBA, and it should be interesting to see how the Pacers manage to bring some offense to the table.

The Heat have great defense, and they also great scorers. The Pacers are a defense-first team, and their goal will be to hold the Heat down and try to keep the game low-scoring.

We'll see if they can pull it off. Either way, it looks like this should be a very competitive series, and things could get pretty physical.

In case  you missed it, here's the video of Hibbert's epic block on Melo:
