HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - Roy Hibbert, center for the Indiana Pacers, called out former-Rocket-turned-Heat forward Shane Battier on Twitter after Wednesday’s 102-103 loss to Miami.  Hibbert felt Battier’s knee to his groin region, during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, was a cheap shot.  Battier planted his knee into Hibbert during a first-quarter drive to the basket.  Hibbert was rewarded with an offensive foul call on Battier but retaliated after the game when he read that Battier’s knee was accidental.

The Eastern Conference finals continue with Game 2 Friday night.  Hibbert and the Pacers (0-1) will take on the Miami Heat (1-0) at AmericanAirlines Arena 7:30 (CT).
