CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The point, coach Erik Spoelstra said Wednesday, is that point guard should not be construed as...
BEST OF MAXIM
It is often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if that's true, then in calling up the game-winning alley-oop in the Miami HEAT's 103-101 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Erik Spoelstra offered up the best compliment any coach could offer to Doc Rivers.
The Miami HEAT were one of the best teams in the league after timeouts last season, and that prowess was on display once again at the end of the first half against Boston, when Erik Spoelstra broke out a Wade-James-Bosh misdirection set.
It's fun, for some, to talk about why a certain player gets the call to take the last shot in a game. You can wax poetic for days musing on the reasons why the ball is in one player's hands and not those of another. With the HEAT, Erik Spoelstra just goes with what makes the most sense.
Chris Bosh is still learning Erik Spoelstra's new "pace and space" offensive philosophy.
Had a chance to sit down for a segment on NBC Sports Talk on Versus (soon to be NBCSports) and discuss everything from Erik Spoelstra to Chris Bosh to where the Heat are headed.
