Miami Heat Schedule in 2014-15
The Miami Heat are ready to turn up the temperature on the basketball court this
season as they host some of the best teams from around the National Basketball Association. The Heat saw their best player
leave town this offseason when LeBron James headed back to Cleveland, but the team still has a roster that looks like it can
contend in the Eastern Conference. With Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade still on board, one can't rule out a fifth-straight NBA
Finals appearance for this Miami squad. The Heat will face plenty of tough tests at home this season, but their fans will
be behind them cheering on the Heat to victory every time out.
Miami will surely be looking forward to the return of
the King when James comes back to American Airline Arena, this time as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. James has a lot
of talent around him in Cleveland, but it's all young talent and nobody is quite sure just how good the Cavs will be in year
one of James' second stint with the organization. The Heat may be the better team right now, and they would love to send James
back to his home state with a loss. James is certainly capable of dominating any game on any given night, but if anyone knows
his nuances it's his former teammates.
The Heat will need to play well when the Washington Wizards come to town this
season, as Washington could be the team that poses the biggest threat to Miami within the Southeast Division. Washington has
a nice mix of veterans and young guys, and their backcourt of John Wall and Bradley Beal is blossoming into one of the best
in the NBA. The Heat would be wise to lean on Bosh and Wade against a team of this caliber, especially Bosh and his versatility.
There are some other great games coming to Miami this season as well, so take a peek as the schedule.
The Miami Heat faced their biggest nightmare this offseason when LeBron James decided to leave South Beach
to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Many organizations would have been sent reeling from a departure such as this one, but
not the Miami Heat. Executive Pat Riley is too savvy to let that happen. The Heat went right back to work in shoring up the
roster, re-signing forward Chris Bosh to a near-max contract that will keep him in a Heat uniform for the next five seasons.
The team also re-upped with guard Dwyane Wade for two more years. To help fill the void that James' departure created the
Heat landed small forward Luol Deng on a very reasonable contract. Deng has been one of the more underrated players in the
league over the last four or five years, and he should be a big part of what the Heat do over the next two years. Miami will
lean heavily on Bosh, who many believe is still capable of being a number one option for a contending team. Bosh took a backseats
to James and Wade over the last four years, but it looks as though he'll be the go-to guy in Miami going forward. With Wade,
Deng and a slew of solid role players, the Heat look primed to contend in a wide open Eastern Conference. It should be very
interesting to see how things shake out for this team in 2014-15.
It doesn't get much better
taking in an NBA game from your seat in the stands, and you can see that for yourself when you head out to America Airlines
Arena to be a part of all the action at a Miami Heat game. The Heat have some of the best players in the National Basketball
Association, and you'll be amazed what they're capable of when you see them play in person. These athletes are incredible
in what they can do on the court, and the best way to see that is from your very own seat in the stands. Be there in the arena
this season when the Heat take on their toughest opponents.
