Erik Spoelstra Rumors

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra doesn’t think Justise Winslow intentionally stepping on the popped-out lens of Joel Embiid’s face mask in Game 3 was a fineable offense. However, the NBA fined the Heat reserve $15,000 on Friday. “But we get it,” Spoelstra said. “It adds to the side stories to what’s really going on. It’s a good series going on.”
Heat center Hassan Whiteside suggested a change in Miami’s offensive approach has affected his production in the playoffs. “It’s just different, man. I feel like our offense is a lot different. I’m not as involved in as many dribble handoffs as I was and post-ups as I was in the regular season,” Whiteside said after scoring five points in 13 minutes in Miami’s Game 3 loss to Philadelphia. “That’s what coach [Erik Spoelstra] wants. Coach wants me to just be in the corner and set picks. That’s what he wants. I’ve just got to trust it.”
