Making the most out of the PBA break, Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel coach Tim Cone spent some quality time with his family and also recently met with Miami Heat mentor Erik Spoelstra during an NBA game Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time).

Cristina Cone, Tim’s wife, posted a photo of them on Twitter after the Heat defeated the Golden State Warriors 113-101 Tuesday at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California.

“Great win tonight by the Miami Heat! Thankful for the tickets,” Cristina said in the tweet, with a smiling emoji. “Congratulations coach Spo!!” she added. Cone and his wife were joined by their son Kevin.

Cone and Spoelstra are known to have a close relationship that goes way back.

Both champion coaches also watched together an NBA Summer League game at courtside in 2014.

Spoelstra last visited the Philippines in 2012 for the NBA Trophy Tour.

The 49-year-old Fil-Am coach steered the Heat to back-to-back NBA titles in 2012 and 2013, led by the Big Three  — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
