With the Chicago Bulls' loss Saturday night, the Miami Heat clinched a playoff berth for the 19th time in franchise history. After missing the playoffs last year after six straight postseasons, Heat fans will get a chance to re-watch their team at the highest level.
Tickets for the 2016 White Hot Miami HEAT Playoffs will go on sale Thursday, April 7th at 10:00 a.m. There will be an eight-ticket limit per household per game. Expected to sell quickly, fans can purchase tickets online at HEAT.com, Ticketmaster.com, at all Ticketmaster outlets or by calling 1-800-4NBA-TIX. Playoff tickets can also be bought at the AmericanAirlines Arena beginning Friday, April 8th at 10:00 a.m.
During the on-sale, fans will be able to buy Home Games 1, 2 and 3 of the First Round. Home Game 4, if required, will be sold at a later date. Home Game 3 will only be played if necessary. If fans purchase a ticket for any unplayed game, they will be automatically issued a refund by Ticketmaster, including fees (except UPS and retail pickup fees). If fans decide to buy tickets at a retail location, they can secure a refund by returning tickets for unplayed games at the same retail location where the tickets were originally purchased.
The Heat (44-32) are currently sixth in the Eastern Conference and battling with the Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics and Charlotte Hornets as all four teams have similar records as they seek the highest seed possible. If the Heat capture the third or fourth seed, they will have home court the first round.
