09:40 AM ET 01.06 | Heat coach Erik Spoelstra's message to the team one day after being outrebounded by 20: Just do it. "Nike said it best, right?" Spoelstra said. Instead of a traditional practice on Saturday, the Heat reviewed film of every offensive rebound the Chicago Bulls pulled down in Friday's 96-89 loss. It took a while. The Bulls had 19 offensive rebounds. Spoelstra and Heat players LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem each repeated a different version of the same thing. There is no magic bullet to fix the Heat's rebounding woes. It's just about playing with more effort. "This is something we are going to fix," Spoelstra said. "We went over every single one of them and now it's just a matter of changing it and being really committed to that side of the floor."
