Heat Head Coach
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.
It’s been one-year in the making, but the Eastern Conference Finals will match up the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat starting Wednesday night. Both teams are ready for the matchup and there certainly isn’t any love lost between the two squads.
As the Miami Heat prepare to face the Memphis Grizzlies to open the month of March Friday, head coach Erik Spoelstra is being honored for just how well his team played in February.
If Miami Heat coach Eric Spoelstra has the chance to win a round of the NBA playoffs or take a hit in the pocketbook, chances are good he’s OK with writing a check. He’ll have to, after the league fines him $25 thousand Friday following comments he made blasting the hard fouls given two heat players before Thursday night’s playoff game against the Pacers, a game the Heat won.
Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra will likely be a little bit lighter in the pocketbook after he criticized the NBA for not protecting his players in the wake of Udonis Haslem’s suspension for a flagrant foul in Game 5 Tuesday.
The Miami Heat were arguably the hottest team in the NBA during the month of February and head coach Erik Spoelstra is now reaping the rewards of the team’s stellar play.
