As the Miami Heat look to resume their season, along with the rest of the league, look to see a lot of them. They are poised to play on the biggest stage a ton.
The Miami Heat are back people! Well, so is the rest of the NBA.
While details started to emerge several weeks back, we now have a complete schedule for the NBA restart in Orlando. It is glorious for the Miami Heat, and even If I do say so myself.
While a running joke, of sorts, has been that the national media hates the Miami Heat, neglecting to cover them as closely as other teams and due to the fact they seem to always fall short in terms of national television platforms, things did start to look up a bit before the suspension was put into place.
Although it wasn’t completely addressed in any manner, when the period of time came upon us where the networks had a bit more flexibility in the games they were going to show, we did start to sit a bit more Miami Heat basketball on the national stage.
However, this new NBA schedule for the NBA restart takes that a bit further. While you have to take it with a grain of salt, being that they will show most games, the networks are starving for live sports content, and with the fact that they know any games will probably be ratings gold, you have to take your W’s where you can get them.
While games are set to kick off on Thursday, July 30, a doubleheader featuring the Utah Jazz/New Orleans Pelicans and a Battle for LA with the Clippers versus the Lakers, the Miami Heat will still have to wait a few days.
The Miami Heat are back and they will be on the national stage a ton!
A national television game scheduled for one o’clock on that Saturday, August 1st against the Denver Nuggets and a skinny Nikola Jokic will be the Miami Heat’s first test of the NBA restart.
They will then play again on Monday the 3rd against Toronto, Tuesday the 4th against Boston, and Thursday the 6th against Milwaukee, all on national television, before taking on the Suns in their first non-nationally televised game on Saturday the 8th.
We can also take solace and enjoyment in the fact that at least according to the games released so far, they will face the Indiana Pacers at least twice and all within a four day span. Fireworks.gif is the only appropriate phrase to fit that.
In any situation, Miami Heat basketball is back and we are excited. Although there are some that said it shouldn’t have come back, which is a strong and very logical stance to take, it is back and since it is, we can’t wait to see it!
