MIAMI, MAY 5– For the fourth consecutive year, the Miami HEAT and broadcast partner Sun Sports are teaming up to bring fans unparalleled coverage of their team for every remaining playoff game via HEATVonHEAT.com, a series of live webcasts before and after each game. HEATVonHEAT.com is presented by Papa John’s.
Beginning with Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals versus the Brooklyn Nets, HEAT fans can tune into HEATVonHEAT.com for an exclusive one-hour pre-game show.
