Heat vs Raptors Tickets – Jan 23rd in American Airlines Arena

 

Heat vs Pistons Tickets – Jan 25th in American Airlines Arena

 

 

Miami Heat tickets are big sellers on the road. When Miami comes to town NBA fans want to be there. That’s also been true of the Los Angeles Lakers in recent memory but nowadays the Lakers struggles have taken some of the dew off of the rose.

As for Miami, the road is not always kind. In fact, when the Heat hit the air you can almost bet on a  .500 outing. It happened again this trip as Miami finished a six-game road trip with a 99-90 win over the Lakers in LA.

LeBron James was a killer, finishing with 39 points. Dwyane Wade came back from a semi-benching with 27 and a late-game surge by Ray Allen made useless a Los Angeles flurry to finish.

Of course with the Lakers seemingly mired in the bottom of the West this Lakers vs Heat matchup never had the allure of those in past seasons when NBA fans could dream they were getting a preview of an NBA Championship series. But it was nice to beat the Lakers anyway. Miami hasn’t been doing that on a consistent basis.

From here the Miami Heat enter much friendlier territory and stand a decent chance of gaining some ground in the Eastern Conference. But it will be a very short stay at home with only a pair of games in American Airlines Arena before Miami takes to the road again. Let’s enjoy it while we can. We’re looking at Miami vs Toronto on Jan 23rd, and Miami vs Detroit on Jan 25th.
