There has not been a preseason game more hyped up than the one between the Miami Heat and Detroit Pistons tonight. Possibly due to the fact that one of the greatest juggernaut’s in NBA history are stepping onto the court for the first time since joining forces in early July.
It has been a long summer as Heat fans have patiently waited for the preseason to arrive so that they might finally get a glimpse of their new look team and they will get their wish at 7:30 tonight at the American Airlines Arena in a match up with the Pistons.
There will be much to see from the AAA tonight as we get to see our first looks at Mike Miller, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Eddie House in the red and black, but obviously the focus will be on that of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh and just how well they mesh together. With eight preseason games on tap, there will be ample enough opportunities to get a chance to see the Heat in action prior to the start of the regular season.
There will also be opportunities for the nation to see as the Heat’s last two preseason game’s are nationally televised. To put that into perspective, there are a number of teams that don’t have that many nationally televised regular season games. With the entire preseason televised locally, observing games won’t be difficult to those in the counties surrounding the AAA.
