The Heat and Thunder will play on Christmas Day and Valentine's Day after meeting in the NBA Finals last season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder will get their first crack at the Miami Heat on Christmas day, according to the Sun-Sentinel. It will be one of two regular season games between the two teams.

The Heat's first rematch of the 2012 NBA Finals will be Christmas Day, when the Heat host the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Heat play Feb. 14 in Oklahoma City in the second game of that two-game season series. The Heat defeated the Thunder 4-1 in the NBA Finals, closing out that series with three consecutive victories at AmericanAirlines Arena.

With both teams being in the Finals last season and having several of the league's top players, it is no surprise that the NBA is trying to market the Heat and Thunder as their top teams.
