2012 NBA Playoffs, Heat Vs. Pacers: Miami Cancels Practice, Media Availability On Friday

Things aren't going so well right now for the Miami Heat. They lost one of their All-Stars, then lost two games in a row, and now are facing a veritable mud-win in Indianapolis on Sunday. O, and there's this. . .

The media was already in full meltdown mode about the Heat possibly losing this series and getting broken apart in the offseason, now with the news that they are canceling practice and media availability, the Internet might explode. I could understand a day of rest, considering they have another off-day on Saturday to get some work in, but canceling the media availability prevents them from providing a good reason why just makes the speculation about their goal go off the charts.
