2013 NBA Finals Playoff Coverage to Continue Via HEATV on HEAT.com and HEAT LIVE Post Game Shows
MIAMI – As the Miami HEAT head into their matchup with the San Antonio Spurs during the 2013 NBA Finals, broadcast partner, Sun Sports and HEATV will continue to build on the momentum they have established with their stand-alone programming before and after each NBA Finals game. As they have done in each of the last two seasons and again in the Second and Third Rounds of this year’s playoffs, HEATV and Sun Sports will bring fans unparalleled coverage before and after each and every game both online and on television.
The HEAT’s Emmy-award winning broadcast production team will continue to bring fans HEATV on HEAT.com, a pre-game show that begins 90 minutes prior to the start of every contest during the Finals. After the game, fans can once again turn to their local favorites to find the most comprehensive post-game coverage in a collective effort by Sun Sports and HEATV. HEAT Live post-game shows will air on both HEAT.com and Sun Sports immediately following the conclusion of each game. Coverage will continue to emanate from the Biscayne Bayside Studios with live reports from San Antonio. Jason Jackson, Eric Reid, Tony Fiorentino, John Crotty and reporters Kristen Hewitt and Johanna Gomez will anchor the efforts.
All games televised during the 2013 NBA Finals are exclusive national telecasts on ABC. The complete schedule for the NBA Finals, as well as times for the pre-game programming, is listed below.
