Dominic McGuire earns an extra $100

As if his Indiana Pacers needed extra motivation, Roy Hibbert realized during a late time out Tuesday night that the struggling Charlotte Bobcats might not score 80 points.

His mouthed opened and out came a challenge.

Keep the Bobcats in the 70s, Hibbert instructed the five reserve players checked in the game. It's worth $100 per man.

β€œI'm a man of my word,” he assured them.

In a happy locker room following a 103-76 blowout, the highest-paid Pacer ($13.66 million this season) handed out large bills to three teammates, including one he couldn't name, Dominic McGuire, who is playing on a 10-day contract. Jeff Pendergraph refused his reward. Ben Hansbrough must wait until Hibbert finds an ATM.

β€œHe's a rookie; he gets his last,” Hibbert said with playful defiance.
