HEAT HOST OKC IN FINALS REMATCH: Sometiimes the NBA regular season feels a lot longer than it needs to be. The parade of games doesn't have a lot of exciting floats in it. You want to fast-forward to the playoffs. But days like this are the welcome exception: Oklahoma City at Miami. It's a 2012 NBA Finals rematch and, more, important, a very plausible 2013 Finals preview. This will look and feel like a playoff game, led by rivals and friends LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Delicious! A Christmas gift to South Florida. Let's rip it open and enjoy!
