Miami Heat announce 2012-13 preseason schedule

Yes, we know it's been ages since the Miami Heat have played an NBA game. Thankfully, the defending NBA Champions have announced their 2012-13 preseason schedule and it's jam packed with three home games at the AmericanAirlines Arena and three road games in addition to two games against the Los Angeles Clippers as part of the NBA China Games 2012 in Beijing and Shanghai.

The first preseason game is on Sunday, October 7 on the road against the Atlanta Hawks. The other two road games are in Raleigh, North Carolina on October 23 at the PNC Arena against the Charlotte Bobcats and a day later in Kansas City, Missouri against the Washington Wizards at the Sprint Center. Tickets to that game are available by visiting SprintCenter.com or by calling (888) 929-7849.

The three home games at the AAA can be purchased at HEAT.com, Ticketmaster.com, by visiting any Ticketmaster outlet, or by calling 1-800-4NBA-TIX. Tickets can also be purchased at the AmericanAirlines Arena Ticket office Monday through Friday from 10AM to 5PM.

If you've been missing the sweet sounds of Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino you're in luck as four of the eight preseason games will be televised on Sun Sports while ESPN will air the final preseason game against the Hornets on October 26. All of the games will also be heard on WAXY 790AM.
