Riley: No excuses will come from Heat for this season

MIAMI (AP) Pat Riley finds himself leaning his head to the left quite a bit these days. There's an irritated nerve in his neck, and it's far from comfortable.

"It's killing me," Riley said. "But I'm not going to make an excuse for it."

Such was the metaphor that Basketball Hall of Famer and President of the Miami Heat used to assess the 2014-15 season. Excruciating as it often was, Riley is still convinced the team that he helped assemble should be in the playoffs right now.
