In his latest post for his The Last Chip blog, Chris Bosh detailed "The Hunger Games" practices Spoelstra put the team through after a disappointing Game 1 loss to the Chicago Bulls in the 2013 Eastern Conference Semifinals.
"We started the day with a film session, which was brutal.
The Bulls held Miami to 39.7 percent shooting from the floor in that Game 1 loss, while Bosh finished with only nine points on 3-of-10 shooting.
The Heat responded with a resounding 115-78 win over Chicago in Game 2, and Bosh credited Spoelstra's practice for galvanizing the team.
"All of us were naturally competitive, but those Hunger Games film sessions and practices taught us how to lock down our chemistry, develop our ability to communicate without words, and work the collective muscles that had gotten us here in the first place.
