MIAMI - Michael Beasley is making a great impression on Coach Spoelstra in his second stint with the Heat.

Beasley was the second overall pick in the NBA draft out of college.

He never fully reached his potential the first trip in Miami.

However, this time around, Beasley's hard work has caught the eyes of his coach.

Erik Spoelstra said Tuesday, "He's been putting in a lot of work.  Pre-practice, after practice, watching a lot of film, spending a lot of time in our facility.  I hear the door open and the music turn on at least an hour and a half before everybody else arrives."

Coach Spo's advice to Beasley about his successful start, "He has to continue to embrace it."

The Heat host the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
