Ray Allen started in place of slumping Mario Chalmers, a desperate lineup change by coach Erik Spoelstra, but that didn’t work, either.

Spoelstra is planning to visit the Philippines this summer and might cross paths with Pacquiao. But a Spoelstra-Pacquiao coaching matchup is probably not going to happen. Spoelstra simply shook his head at that farfetched notion. "I'll hopefully be able to see him this summer, see what's up," Spoelstra said. "Maybe I'll check out a practice." USA Today Sports

"Don't worry, you guys can talk about me as much as you want. I'll be there on Sunday as well. I'm not hiding." Spoelstra was less committal. "Day-to-day. It's too early to tell right now," he said. "We will continue to treat him. He's as diligent as any athlete I've seen. So he will take care of himself, get rest, and do what he needs to do and obviously, we will have full alert on it."

"We need to our scorers to be aggressive, and (Wade is) sensing that right now," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. For the second consecutive game, the Heat gave the Pacers a lesson in what is required to win a playoff game. Right now, Indiana can't match Miami's focus for 48 minutes. Miami shot 6-for-16 in the first quarter and trailed 37-22 midway through the second quarter. "It looked like we were stuck in the mud in the first quarter," Spoelstra said. USA Today Sports
