[1]Shane Battier will have to wait a little longer for that juicy rib-eye steak.

The Heat’s veteran forward, whose sharpshooting and defense were instrumental in last season’s NBA championship run, continued his postseason funk with a fourth consecutive scoreless game. He played under seven minutes Thursday night and went 0 for 3 as the Heat lost 92-88 to the San Antonio Spurs in the opening game of the NBA Finals.

He was 2 for 16 combined against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals, playing eight scoreless minutes in Game 5, four scoreless minutes in Game 6, and then in Game 7 Battier suffered the ultimate basketball indignity — the dreaded DNP, Coach’s Decision.
