Spoelstra: Some Heat players were "crying" after today's loss to the Bulls

Nobody likes to lose.

Apparently, that's especially true for some (unnamed) players for the Miami Heat, who have now lost four consecutive games.

After today's one-point loss to the Chicago Bulls, ESPN's Brian Windhorst tweeted that Heat coach Erik "Spoelstra said some Heat players are crying in the locker room at the moment."

Crying? Are you serious? From the team that was talking about "not one, not two ... but eight" championships?

Chris Bosh said he "almost" cried but did not. LeBron James said it wasn't him. Per Sam Smith of, Dwayne Wade said, "Why you want to know if I was crying? I’m not going to tell you that.”

As pointed out by ESPN's Tom Haberstroh, the Heat have made only one of 18 shots in the final ten seconds of the fourth quarter or overtime when trailing by three points or less.

Smith notes that the Heat are a combined 1-9 versus the Bulls, Celtics, Spurs, Mavs and Lakers.

In order to get to the NBA Finals, it's likely that they will have to beat the Celtics and/or the Bulls. To win their first championship as The Heatles, they'd then likely have to beat either the Lakers, Spurs or Mavs.

Don't schedule the parade just yet.
