Looking back at the end of last year and the summer, I can see things arent always going to go my way but I need to always be locked and mentally strong, Hibbert said.The Pacers centre had four scoreless post-season games, setting an NBA record for most NBA post-season games with zero points by a current All-Star, and hasnt returned to his former productive self — except when he plays the Jazz.He was great tonight.

Thats why hes a special player for us, Indiana coach Frank Vogel said.Derrick Favours had 27 points and 11 rebounds and Gordon Hayward scored 24 for the Jazz.For the most part, I think we played extremely hard but we just seemed to miss a lot of shots.

Last year with Paul (George) and Lance (Stephenson) and those guys, we knew how to win, how to finish out games. Wed been through it all together.Reserve forward Luis Scola scored 16 points on a variety of crafty moves when Indianas offence bogged down.Miles, who played his first seven seasons in Utah, had 11 of his 13 points in the first half when the Pacers raced to a big lead.The Jazz began the fourth quarter with a 12-4 run that brought Utah to 78-74.

PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jeremy Hellickson isnt used to playing meaningless games. "Its definitely no fun when you come to the park and you know youre not going to be playing in October," Hellickson said after giving up four runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings of Tampa Bays 4-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Friday night that eliminated the Rays from playoff contention. "In the four or five years Ive been here I havent been involved in too many games that havent meant anything." The Rays, who dropped to 35-44 at home, began the day 9 1/2 games behind the second AL wild-card spot. Jose Quintana pitched into the eighth inning and Avisail Garcia had a two-run double for the White Sox. Chicago rookie Jose Abreu also had a run-scoring single during a four-run fifth, giving him 104 RBIs for the season. "We put ourselves in a significant hole (they were 24-42 on June 10) and its been really hard to dig out," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "To not be involved in the post-season is no fun. We expect to be there on an annual basis." The Rays reached the playoffs four of the preceding six years. Tampa Bay had a chance to tie the score in the seventh when Ben Zobrist hit a two-out double off the glove of second baseman Marcus Semien, but Semien recovered the ball in time to throw out Kevin Kiermaier at the plate. Kiermaier was attempting to score from first base after his single. "I never criticize (Kiermaier) because hes always aggressive," Maddon said. "Their guy picks it up and throws a strike at the plate. Out. Theres no guarantee that he would have scored on the next hitter doing something." Logan Forsythe drove in Tampa Bays runs with a two-run double in thee first and a leadoff home run in the fourth, his sixth of the season. Shaquill Griffin Jersey. Quintana (9-10) gave up three runs -- one earned -- and nine hits in 7 1-3 innings. The left-hander is 3-0 with a 1.65 ERA over his last four starts. "After the homer, I think he just really settled down and was aggressive," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura. "Really its kind of a calling card of his. He gets stronger as the game goes along." Zach Putnam got the last two outs, striking out Kiermaier with two runners on in the ninth to earn his sixth save. Hellickson (1-4) failed to get through the fifth inning for the third time in his last five starts. "Its just happened so many times this year with guys giving me a three- or four-run lead, and I throw four or five scoreless and then just lose it the next inning," he said. TRAINERS ROOM White Sox: 1B Paul Konerko, retiring after the season, played for the first time since breaking his left hand in a Sept. 2 game against Minnesota. Rays: IF Sean Rodriguez was not with the team because of a death in the family. ...
