The Miami Heat are a professional basketball team based in Miami, Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. The team is a member of the Southeast Division in the Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). They play their home games at the American Airlines Arena in Downtown Miami. The team owner is Micky Arison, the President is Pat Riley, and the head coach is Erik Spoelstra. The mascot of the team is Burnie, an anthropomorphic fireball.
The Heat were formed as part of the NBA's plan to expand the league in the late 1980s with four expansion franchises, which included the Heat along with Charlotte Hornets in 1988, and the Orlando Magic and Minnesota Timberwolves in 1989. Among those four teams, Miami has been the most successful, winning over 1000 games to date[when?], making 17 playoff appearances, and winning ten division titles, three conference titles and two NBA championships. The Heat defeated the Dallas Mavericks in the 2006 NBA Finals 4–2, lost to the Mavericks 4–2 in the 2011 NBA Finals and beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 4–1 in the 2012 NBA Finals. According to Forbes, as of 2013, the Heat ranked sixth in terms of NBA franchise value at $625 million. The Heat are not related to the former Miami ABA franchise from the early 1970s, the Miami Floridians. The Heat has however paid tribute to the Floridians franchise in the past by wearing a replica version of the Floridians home and away uniforms for the NBA's "Hardwood Classics Nights" for the 2005–06 and 2011–12 seasons.
In the summer of 2010 the Heat pulled off a blockbuster signing of free agents Chris Bosh from the Toronto Raptors and LeBron James from the Cleveland Cavaliers, and managed to re-sign their own free agent Dwyane Wade. Amid intense media scrutiny and criticism all season, Miami reached the 2011 NBA Finals, their second Finals appearance in franchise history, and it was rematch with their 06 Finals counterpart the Dallas Mavericks. Miami took a 2-1 lead in those Finals including a game 3 win in Dallas but would go on to lose 3 straight games after that and ultimately the series including game 6 back in Miami . In 2012 the Heat returned to the Finals, defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games. With that win, Miami became the first team to win a title after falling behind in three different playoff series. These include 2-1 against the Indiana Pacers, 3-2 to the Boston Celtics and 1-0 against the Thunder. This was the second time Miami swept the three home games in the Finals; the first was in 2006.
During the 2012-2013 season, the Heat amassed a franchise record 27 game winning streak that started on February 3, 2013 against the Toronto Raptors and would end on March 27, 2013 in a 101-97 loss to the Chicago Bulls. The streak lasted 52 days, and ranks second all-time in NBA history behind the 1971-1972 LA Lakers 33 game winning streak. It was the longest winning streak in the NBA in 40 years.
