While he never gets mentioned in the conversation for coach of the year, Miami Heat Head Coach Erik Spoelstra has been named as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for March.
It had been more than a decade since the Miami Heat last tasted victory in the Mile High City. But that drought was relieved Thursday night with a 98-93 victory by the Heat over the Denver Nuggets.
LeBron James scored 32 points and hit the clinching free throws with 7 seconds left, Dwyane Wade added 24 points and the Miami Heat claimed home-court advantage in the NBA Finals by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-96 in Game 2 on Thursday night.
For the third time in as many weeks, Miami Heat forward LeBron James has been named the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week.
