Miami Heat fans are cranking up the heat a bit early in the run-up to the playoffs.

For 48 hours, fans will sit outside the American Airlines Arena and endure what Mother Nature throws at them – heat, rain, wind – for a chance to win lower-level tickets to each of the team's home playoff games.

“I’m going to sit here as long as it takes, I’m winning these tickets,” said A.J. Rosa, who rode the train from West Palm Beach for the contest.

The last person to remain seated for 48 consecutive hours will take home the prize. In the case of a tie, the winner will be selected based on trivia questions.

“I’ve been studying,” Rosa said. “Even if I don’t win, it’s going to be an experience.”

The “48 Hours of Intense White Hot Heat” contest began at 11 a.m. Thursday and ends at 11 a.m. Saturday.
