Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on Gabe Vincent's recent play: “Look, I’ve said this before. These are high-class challenges. We want to play for something special. You need depth. You need talent and I think everybody in our locker room feels like we are extremely capable if we have to go deep into our roster. That is the way it should be. Now that is going to require some sacrifice, but our guys are emotionally stable to understand that. There will be some tough decisions, but you get night’s like this where guys are able to help and contribute and help you win. That’s the main thing.”
