Miami Heat Pushing Themselves During Camp

Eric_Griffin_Heat_SLPARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas—Thursday proved to be about rigor and reward for the Miami Heat on the third day of training camp at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort.

Perhaps fittingly, coach Erik Spoelstra threw a blowout at the ballroom-turned-court in the resort’s conference center, pushing his players through an unrelenting 90-minute morning session. The reward was cancellation of the afternoon session, meaning two-a-days are over, with a single session planned here Friday before a return flight to Miami.

“It was all out, as much as you can go, don’t save anything . . . do not pace yourself,” Spoelstra said. “We’re building the habits of intensity and we’ll continue to do that.”
