Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls: Game 3 preview sound

After their win in Game 2 on Wednesday night, the Miami Heat returned home and got a well deserved day off on Thursday.  Considering they spent almost a full week in Chicago thanks to this ridiculously drawn out scheduling (thanks Oprah), getting a full day to relax in their own homes and sleep in their own beds had to have been a pretty rewarding feeling.

Knowing this team, I'm sure they were anxious to get back to work, and on Friday that's just what they did.  Erik Spoelstra rounded up the troops and held practice at the AAA as the Heat prepare for Game 3 on Sunday night.  Almost everyone participated, but Mike Miller wasn't there because his wife is expecting to give birth any time now, and Udonis Haslem sat out as a precaution but said that if there was a game on Friday that he definitely would have been playing. 

Follow the jump to hear the post-practice audio from the usual suspects, Erik Spoelstra and the Big 3, as well as Udonis Haslem.  To hear the cut just click on the file you want to hear and it should open and play in your browser.
