In the 2013 NBA Finals, the Miami Heat managed to battle back from a 3-2 series deficit to the San Antonio Spurs to claim the title.
In the final two games of the series, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra managed to outduel Gregg Popovich, one of the greatest coaches in NBA history.
Thanks to former Heat player Shane Battier, fans now know exactly what Spoelstra said to his players during halftime of a pivotal Game 7.

The message is a fantastic one, and Battier’s tweet offers a wonderful look inside a championship locker room.
Battier played in every game of the seven-game series. He averaged 5.6 points and 1.6 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game.
More importantly he scored nine points on 3-of-4 shooting from beyond the arc in the win-or-go-home Game 6.
There’s no doubt that Battier played a massive role in the Heat clawing back to claim victory in the 2013 NBA Finals.
The same can be said for Spoelstra, who cemented himself as one of the best coaches in the league in that series.
He continues to hold that lofty title to this day.
