Miami Heat Notes, Quotes 2008-12-30
--Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is impressed by Cleveland's defense, which ranks first in points allowed and field goal percentage allowed.

"Cleveland has the same coach and the same system," he said of Cavs coach Mike Brown. "Mike's done a terrific job. It's always been a major point of emphasis on his team and with his style. The main core has been there now for several years."

--F Udonis Haslem had to take six stitches and some medical glue to close a cut above his right eye he sustained Sunday when LeBron James inadvertently elbowed him chasing a loose ball.

--Granted, Cleveland plays tough defense. And it might have been a factor in Miami shooting 43.2 percent from the field Sunday. But the Cavs' defense didn't have as much to do with Miami going 3-for-14 (21.4 percent) on three-pointers or 13-for-20 (65 percent) on free throws.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "He was actually a power forward in disguise playing point guard, so he was a pretty physical player back then. But, yeah, we had some battles." -- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who attended the University of Portland, on his college matchups against Cleveland coach Mike Brown, who attended University of San Diego.
