Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on Tuesday's victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers: “You are going to have a lot of different challenges every night. I think it was a good challenge for us to be able to play with a lead and find a way to continue to extend it and not let them come back. It was a little bit up and down, our game. There was some sloppiness to it and some miscues defensively.”
