The NBA season is in full swing, and we’re pumped to have the Miami Heat back in town. Here’s a look at the season ahead and the home games we can’t wait to see.

Christmas Day vs New Orleans

If you can break away from everyone for the afternoon, head over to the American Airlines Arena, where the Heat will take on the lively New Orleans Pelicans led by the daunting and electric forward Anthony Davis.

January 31st vs Atlanta

It seems clear from their early competition that the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks will be jockeying for the top spot in the Eastern Conference all season long. A couple months into the season, both teams are sure to be worn from playing nearly every day of January, but still hungry with plenty of time left until championships. We’ll be looking forward to an all-star matchup between their Jeff Teague and our own Dwyane Wade.

February 9th vs San Antonio

No matter how old Tim Duncan gets, or how many times the rest of the NBA tries to outsmart coach Greg Popovich, the San Antonio Spurs manage to be one of the toughest teams in the league year in and year out. They don’t travel east too often, so basketball fans in town should take advantage of their visit to the American Airlines Arena this February. We’ll take Chris Bosh over LaMarcus Aldridge all day.

February 24th vs Golden State Warriors

We are very excited to see the world champion Golden State Warriors, another west coast visitor coming to Miami for just one game this season. Anyone, fan or rival, who saw their championship run last season has to give some credit to the superb teamwork and skills of Stephen Curry and company. It will be extra sweet if we can pull out a victory and get some additional clout moving closer to the postseason.

March 19th vs Cleveland

For the rest of his career, LeBron James will face an extra loud American Airlines Arena when he returns to his former home court with the Cleveland Cavaliers. In addition to the drama constantly surrounding our former star, the Cavs are another major contender to win the Eastern Conference, and with just a few weeks of regular season play following, it’s sure to be an important match.
