Perhaps the most revealing exchange came when he talked about the adjustments his staff would have to make before Game 2:
Vogel on Miami defense: "They had a more intelligent plan against Roy Hibbert than New York did and we've got to adjust to it."— Ken Berger (@KBergCBS) May 23, 2013
And while New York never figured out a counter to Indiana's mammoth center, the Heat have the benefit of the experience they gained in their second-round victory over the Pacers last year.
However, in the end, most basketball games come down to personnel, not tactics. Vogel took Hibbert out of the game because he didn't want him defending Chris Bosh, one of the best mid-range shooters in the NBA, 20 feet from the basket.
There's no one on New York's roster who can match Bosh's skillset, Vogel's digs at the Knicks' intelligence notwithstanding.
