Second-Guessing Frank Vogel

I think it’s worth wondering why Frank Vogel closed with starter George Hill at point guard instead of backup Darren Collison. Hill got swallowed up by a Heat trap with Indiana down six, then tried a weird floater in the lane in transition with just over a minute left that air-balled. He looked the complete opposite of poised.

Meanwhile, Collison, while a bit erratic sometimes, was making far more plays off the dribble than Hill. With the Heat’s defense tightening up, Collison’s playmaking ability would have been an asset late.
