In that regard, Robinson looked like the rest of his teammates during the Chicago Bulls' 88-65 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
After it was all over, including Robinson's 0-for-12 shooting from the field, the diminutive point guard slouched glumly in front of his stall with a huge ice pack around his left shoulder. He looked exhausted. After so many thrilling performances, Robinson responded with his worst game of the year on the biggest of stages. He couldn't get into any kind of rhythm and turned the ball over four times. For the first time in weeks, Robinson looked every bit the part of the third-string point guard he was signed to be when the season began.
