Miller was driving to the hoop when West chopped his right arm down over Miller's right shoulder from behind, catching Miller in the face with a forearm. Miller dropped to the floor and remained down for several seconds. He remained in with no apparent injury.
e first half, when New Orleans trailed 48-43.
