When teams win championships, star players shine. But sometimes, with so much excitement surrounding the NBA Finals, other players have a chance to step into the spotlight—enter the Miami Heat’s Rashard Lewis.
The NBA announced Monday that Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra was named the Eastern Conference Coach of the month after the Heat put together a league-best 9-1 record during February.

By the time the Miami Heat get on their plane to come home late Sunday night, they could have a stranglehold on the race to finish with the NBA’s best record.
The Miami Heat have won 25 straight games, turned what was a super-close Eastern Conference race into a runaway and seem to be finding different ways to prevail on a nightly basis.
