Heat coach Erik Spoelstra: “That’s why you just have to stay the course and really focus on what’s real. We’ve been doing more good things and taking this thing in a direction we want to offensively the last 6-8 weeks. The last 10 days it hasn’t been consistent, so that can skew your overall view on where the offense is going. We have to incorporate these guys and continue to play more to our strengths. Overall, we’re heading in the right direction.”
