Sunday Basketball Notes
Heat confident about their title defense
The difference between the 2012-13 season and the previous two in South Beach is the added hardware and bling. AmericanAirlines Arena is glittered with gold after the Heat’s second title in seven years and first of their Big Three Era. Other than that, little has changed. The Heat are geared to compete for another championship with the addition of Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, and they looked impressive in their debut, a 120-107 pasting of the Celtics.
