INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Miami Heat canceled practice and their media availability one day after a blowout loss in Game 3 to the Pacers.
The team gave no immediate reason for Friday's decision, which was announced on the Heat's media telephone hotline.
The Heat lost 94-75 on Thursday night and trail Indiana 2-1 in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Miami's latest defeat was magnified by a sideline confrontation between star guard Dwyane Wade and coach Erik Spoelstra. The two exchanged words during one of the worst playoff games of Wade's career. He scored just 5 points on 2-of-13 shooting and refused to discuss what happened with Spolestra.
Wade has been slowed by injuries. The Heat are also without power forward Chris Bosh, who has an abdominal strain.
