MIAMI (AP) — Erik Spoelstra got a milestone win, and it didn’t come easily. Jimmy Butler scored 29 points, Bam Adebayo had a big three-point play with 51.8 seconds left and the Miami Heat went on a 17-0 run in the second half before hanging on late to beat the San Antonio Spurs 116-111. It was the 600th regular-season win for Spoelstra, making him the 27th coach in NBA history to win that many and just the sixth coach to do so with one franchise. Dejounte Murray had 22 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists for the Spurs, who were without starting guard Derrick White, who is expected to miss the rest of the season with a sprained ankle.
