Miami Heat Cancel Friday Practice Following Loss To Pacers

The Miami Heat certainly had some issues to iron out following Thursday night's loss to the Indiana Pacers, considering they were defeated 94-75 in Game 3 of the potential seven-game series. In that regard, it made sense when the following email -- regarding a Shane Battier conference call to speak about a charity golf event -- arrived in the inbox of your's truly on Friday morning.

The Shane Battier/American Century Championship media conference call for today has been postponed.

Coach Spoelstra called a practice for today at that time. We will let you know when it is rescheduled.

Following that loss, it was no surprise that head coach Erik Spoelstra would decide to hold an impromptu practice session to get everyone's ducks in a row before Miami falls behind by another game to the underdog Pacers.

Shortly thereafter, however, contrary words spread like wildfire on Twitter regarding Miami's Friday practice schedule.

It makes sense that the Heat would rather not meet with the media following that loss -- and the questions they'd be asked regarding Dwyane Wade's meltdown and sideline spat with Spoelstra -- but it's awfully random that the team would randomly schedule -- and then cancel-- a practice within just a few hours on a Friday morning.
