People in South Florida were still celebrating the Miami Heat’s Game 7 win over the Pacers on Tuesday. Neil Homy, Santiago Mesa, Andy Montero and Melissa Scott spoke about Heat fever.
Tickets will be available for games 1 and 2 against the San Antonio Spurs. But the inventory is low and tickets are expected to sell quickly, the team said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Miami Heat merchandise is selling out in Miami-Dade. At the Sports Authority in Midtown, the hats were completely sold out. The shirts were also beginning to disappear.
"Ready to win it all,"said Meka Hamilton, who was shopping for the championship gear. "I got my Heat gear."
The tickets for the NBA finals will be available online or by phone, and there will be a limit of eight tickets per household.
Tickets will not be available at the AmericanAirlines Arena ticket office until Wednesday at 10 a.m.
Game 1 is scheduled for Thursday night at the AAA, with Game 2 on Sunday.
"We might sweep 'em, but you know it's gonna be a good fight, it's gonna be a good fight," said fan, William Finch.
T-shirts were being printed at places like Miami Tees. Santiago Mesa got to work making 30,000 T-shirts before the game ended.
"When I saw the score, my boss said 'Let's start printing,' and this is the first shirt before the game finished," he said.
This factory printed nine different designs, but there are many more out there for sale.
"We always watch the games together. Even if we're not together, we're on the phone, texting, saying 'Hey did you see that play. Did you see this and that,'" said Melissa Scott.
