NBA Weekly Preview: Feb.11-16


Before the NBA’s finest take the floor at the Toyota Center in Houston on Sunday Feb. 17 for the 62nd annual All-Star Game, the Association’s got another full slate of intense NBA battles on tap for this week and we’ve got experiences for two of them, both involving the reigning champions – the Miami Heat. So, come check out what the league and Fandeavor has in store for NBA fans this week!

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Miami Heat – Tuesday Feb. 12

On Tuesday, the Blazers will invade South Beach, looking for a rare road win against the Eastern Conference’s top team. Meanwhile, the Heat will aim to defend their pristine home win-loss record, while also defending the AmericanAirlines Arena from this Western intruder.

Several Heat stars, including All-Stars Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, will still be getting over the flu, but should be good to go for this All-Star Game warm-up match. The Heat will certainly need their top defenders against a perimeter-shooting Blazers squad that can light it up from the corners if unguarded. Of course, Portland will have its hands full on the other end of the floor with LeBron James and Co., who boast one of the top scoring teams in the entire NBA.

You can witness this premium NBA match-up in-person via’s Build Your Own Experience, which includes 100-level seats and deluxe transportation. There’s simply no other way to do it in South Beach, so jump on this deal before it’s gone!

Miami Heat vs. Oklahoma City Thunder – Thursday Feb. 14

After defending their home court against Portland on Tuesday, the Heat will travel out to OKC to test themselves against one of the best of the West – the Oklahoma City Thunder – in the much anticipated rematch of last year’s NBA Finals. The Thunder are playing top notch basketball in 2012-2013 and appear to have revenge on their minds, but the Heat may have other plans.

After spending most of this season atop their respective conference standings, the Heat and Thunder appear destined to take their newly-found rivalry to the finals again. So, this game could ultimately be a preview of the 2013 NBA championships, but will it be a repeat of last year? We’ll see what the teams have in store for each other on Thursday as each team plays its last game before the All-Star break.

The Chesapeake Energy Arena is one of the best venues to watch a game in any sport and in any league, so there’s no doubt that you will want to be there for one of the biggest match-ups of the NBA regular season. Check out’s Build Your Own Experience for this game, which includes Deluxe transportation to and from the arena, and of course, some of the best seats in the house.
