INDIANAPOLIS — Miami coach Erik Spoelstra and his wife Nikki became parents Sunday of their first child, a son.
Spoelstra was back in Miami and not with the Heat for their game at Indiana, the first contest he missed in his 10-year tenure as head coach. Heat assistant coach Dan Craig took his spot for Miami’s 113-107 overtime loss to the Pacers.
“Spo is right where he needs to be,” Craig said.
The Heat announced during Sunday’s game that the baby arrived — 6 pounds, 8 ounces and checking in at 19 inches long.
“Obviously, it’s a really exciting time for them,” Craig said. “The team’s excited. The staff’s excited.”
