Matchups: Miami Heat VS Brooklyn Nets
Miami Heat at Brooklyn Nets
It won’t take long for NBA fans to see how one of the biggest new-look teams in the Eastern Conference stacks up to the two time defending champion Miami Heat, and its MVP LeBron James. The Miami Heat at Brooklyn Nets November 1 matchup will feature a familiar cast of visitors – James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and a mix of role players in and out. However, the home team will have a completely new look thanks to a big off-season trade that brought in former Boston Celtics stars Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry. The Heat – especially James – have a storied rivalry with these former cornerstones of a perennial NBA title contender, so how will things shake out with the back-to-back title winning Miami Heat against Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov’s real-life fantasy team?
These two teams did meet during the NBA preseason, but game plans are pretty vanilla and the stars don’t play too often. When the games start counting, the intensity ramps up and the ticket prices start soaring. On average, tickets for the November 1 Heat @ Nets game are selling over three times the price of the October 17 game at Barclays. The first Miami at Brooklyn game’s average ticket price is $294, which is nearly five times the amount Heat fans paid at American Airlines Arena October 25. The Brooklyn Nets window for a championship is short and expensive; with Pierce and Garnett nearing the end of their respective careers, they’ll need to mesh quickly with the rest of the Brooklyn roster to make a real run at the 2014 NBA title. They’ll get a very early assessment of their chances in the Barclays Center home opener versus the Miami Heat, and we’ll all get to witness what King James has up his sleeve this year. This is going to be a great matchup.
