The Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs playing in front of a small crowd. Sound familiar?
Heat fans were lambasted for leaving early during Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals, so you would think people would pack AmericanAirlines Arena for a rematch of that epic series.
Apparently Heat supporters don't care about showing up for a big showdown between division leaders.
ESPN's Tom Haberstroh let everyone know how empty the lower bowl was:
Thousands of empty seats in the lower bowl. Finals rematch.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) January 26, 2014
Bleacher Report's Ethan J. Skolnick offers up an excuse for the fans:

The South Florida Sun Sentinel's Ira Winderman didn't hold back:
Upper bowl packed. Lower bowl sleeping in. An embarrassing look for NBA Finals rematch.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) January 26, 2014
Not a good look for Heat fans.
