Miami Heat fans wanting to score tickets to the Eastern Conference semifinals against either the Brooklyn Nets or Toronto Raptors will need to be ready Tuesday afternoon. The team announced individual game tickets go on sale Tuesday at 2 p.m.
With Brooklyn and Toronto the potential opponents of the Heat, based on the season records, Heat fans might want to break out some cheers for the Raptors.
Currently, the Raptors and Nets’ series is tied at two games apiece with the next game scheduled for Wednesday night.
The Heat was swept by the Nets this season in four regular season matchups. The Nets has two-thirds of the former Boston Celtics Big Three in Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. The team has also improved throughout the season and has repeatedly given the Heat headaches.
Just how close have the games between the Nets and the Heat been during the regular season? Through four games the two teams are separated by just 12 points. Three of the four regular season matchups between Miami and Brooklyn have been decided by just one point.
On the flip side, Miami swept Toronto this season with Chris Bosh playing inspired basketball against his former team. Miami won by an average of 7.9 points during the regular season against the Raptors.
For fans wanting to purchase tickets, they will be available at Heat.com, Ticketmaster.com, or any Ticketmaster outlet. However, tickets will not be available at the AmericanAirlines Arena ticket office until 10 a.m. Wednesday.
