The Heat are coming off a trip to the NBA Finals last season, but they haven’t been able to reap the benefits of having a large home crowd due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the NBA and the world continues to figure out life with COVID-19, Miami clearly believes it is safe enough to start allowing more fans into games.
The Heat are just 10-14 this season, but they have won three consecutive games.
Miami was without star Jimmy Butler for a lengthy period of time due to the league’s health and safety protocols, but it has looked much better since his return.
The Heat are about to start a West Coast road trip, but they will return home to Miami on Feb. 24 against the Toronto Raptors.
