Heat fans are starting to get frustrated with coach Erik Spoelstra.

In the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers, Heat fans let Spoelstra know how they felt about the team's recent struggles.

According to Tom Haberstroh of ESPN, fans started chanting "We want Riley" when Miami was down by nine with seven minutes left in the game.

Spoelstra has had a roller coaster week during Miami's five-game losing skid.

After the Heat lost to the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, Spoelstra said there were "a couple of guys crying there in the locker room."

He backtracked his comment one day later, ripped the media and said that reporters were "really searching for sensationalism now."
