The Miami Heat won their second consecutive NBA title on Thursday with a 95-88 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals.

Now the festivities can begin.

The305.com has the details of the victory parade:

According to Sports Talk Florida, the parade will roll through downtown Miami and will be followed by a private rally inside AmericanAirlines Arena.

More details, including the route, are expected to be released on Friday afternoon, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Last year when the Heat won the championship on a Thursday, they had the parade on the following Monday, per the Miami Herald. Victory festivities began at 9 a.m. before the parade started at 11 a.m.

The parade started at Brickell Village, continued over the Miami River and finished at AmericanAirlines Arena. 

More specifically, the parade started at the corner of Southeast Eighth Street and Second Street, headed east on Eighth, then north on Bickell Avenue across the bridge, before continuing north on Biscayne Boulevard to the arena.

At 12:30 p.m., a private celebration featuring the Heat was held inside AmericanAirlines Arena, reserved for season ticket-holders.

Thursday's game was a back-and-forth affair. The Heat outscored the Spurs by two points in the first quarter, and both teams scored 28 points in the second quarter. In the third quarter, the Spurs outscored the Heat by one point.

But it was Miami that emerged victorious in the end, outscoring San Antonio in the final quarter of the 2012-13 NBA season, 23-17.

There were seven lead changes, and the game was tied up 11 times. San Antonio shot 37.8 percent from the floor, going 6-of-19 from beyond the arc in the process. Miami, meanwhile, shot 43.9 percent from the field and went 12-of-32 from three.  

Stay tuned. When the rest of the parade information for this year becomes available, it will be updated here.
