The Heat face the Cavaliers in Brazil on Saturday as part of the NBA’s Global Games preseason slate, and while the players involved may be trying to downplay the first meeting between LeBron James and his former Miami teammates, these types of clashes — even though they don’t count in the standings — are part of what attract fans to the game on an emotional level.

The NBA is using this opportunity to premiere its first ad spot, which does a nice job of getting us hyped for the upcoming season.

Expect to see more of these once the season begins, as the plan is to create city-specific spots for all 30 teams.
