After combining for 23 first-half points, David West and Roy Hibbert have only scored four since halftime. Hibbert’s excuse is foul trouble -- he picked up his fourth early in the third quarter. West, meanwhile, isn’t finding enough space on pick and pops.
Mostly, though, this is an illustration of how tough it is to maintain a post advantage in today’s NBA. The Heat pressure the ball so well when locked in, which takes away all easy passing angles. It’s much easier said than done to keep your post players locked in.
Also, Hibbert just picked up his fifth foul.
