As the Golden State Warriors prepare for their most high-profile home game, their opponents will be practicing in a pretty nice college environment across the Bay. The Miami Heat have an old connection to thank for that. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel has more.
Instead, the Heat found themselves with the run of the gym at the University of San Francisco because that's where Walters, the former Heat guard and Florida Atlantic University coach, now coaches.
"We've stayed in contact," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said in advance of Tuesday's game against the Golden State Warriors, the third stop on this five-game trip. "I guess over the years, we've texted each other. I don't see him that often. I saw him some at a clinic this summer, so we were able to spend a little bit of time together."
