The Los Angeles Lakers are looking to close out the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals Friday night.
But as time in the NBA bubble and watching the NBA restart is nearing an end, Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts joined hosts NBA Champion Channing Frye and Emmy Award winner Dan Sheldon on the latest Talkin’ Blazers Podcast.
Coach Stotts gave a lot of credit to the underdogs, particularly for the way the Heat conduct themselves as a team and as an organization.

Riley has been with the Miami Heat since 1995 when he resigned from the Knicks to become president and head coach of the Heat.
It was in late April of 2008 when Riley announced that he would step down as coach and that’s when former Miami assistant Erik Spoelstra was announced as his replacement. But, of course, Riley has remained as team president.
Coach Stotts expressed admiration of Spoelstra continuing the Heat tradition.
