Heat's Spolestra Back For Tonight's Game After Wife Gives Birth

The Heat are expected to have their head coach back on the sidelines when they host the Cavs at AmericanAirlines Arena tonight. 

Eric Spoelstra missed Miami's overtime loss at Indianapolis to be with his wife, Nikki, who gave birth to the couple's first child on Sunday night. 

It was 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.

But even though the Heat have their head coach back, the Cleveland Cavaliers will forge ahead without their head coach.

Tyronn Lue took a leave of absence on March 19th, citing chest pain.

Tonight's game gets started at 8 p.m.
