Quote of the night: "We're going to get better at that"
Spoelstra spoke with the media following the Heat’s loss, giving off a hopeless tone. Injuries have surroudned the Heat’s roster from the start of the season, and right now the coaching staff seems frustrated with the numerous game plans they have to develop.
"We had some of those breakdowns that led to open shots and if you defend it right and are super disciplined and focused and locked in that doesn’t guarantee anything. It leaves us wondering," Spoelstra said. "Those last six minutes, whether those were mental fatigue errors or just lack of discipline errors, I don’t know, but we’re definitely going to get better at that."
The Heat will have an opportunity against the same Bulls squad on Saturday, so Spoelstra will be able to make some adjustments and Miami's players will get some rest after playing this one on the second night of a back-to-back.
