The White Hot Heat is back. Whether you're a diehard fan who never misses a game or the kind who digs your number 6 jersey out of the back of your closet when playoffs roll around, it's always fun to rally behind the home team.

With one win under its belt and tonight's game at 7 p.m. at home and broadcast on TNT, the Heat hopes to earn that coveted threepeat when all is said and done. This is Heat Nation, after all, and many restaurants and bars are showing their support by offering food and drink specials that will certainly get better as the championship gets closer.

For now, here are your ten best bets for catching all of this year's NBA playoffs action.

American Airlines Arena
If you're lucky enough to snag a spot at the game itself, the Triple-A has plenty of playoff specials. With new food items such as Buffalo Heat nachos and White Hot sushi rolls to drinks like White Hot sangria and bottomless fountain soda served in limited-edition White Hot Heat player cups, you don't have to settle for the standard overpriced burger and fries.

Batch Gastropub
This new Brickell hot spot offers $15 Miller Lite pitchers during all games plus a dozen wings for $8. Feel good buying a special Batch White Hot T-shirt for $20, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to charity. Even better: Wear the tee during all Heat games broadcast at Batch and enjoy $5 craft beers.

Blackbird Ordinary
If you've never watched the Heat play at Blackbird, you don't know what you're missing. Enjoy one of the hangout's expertly made cocktails or draft beers from the bar inside while watching basketball on the giant projector screen outside. Blackbird often brings in a chef to grill on the breezy patio, making for a picture-perfect Miami night.

Brother Jimmy's BBQ
A go-to spot for New Yorkers and Brickellites alike, Bro J's in Sunset Place recently opened. Chow down on barbecue specialties while guzzling beer with your favorite frat bros and watching the game on the many flat-screen TV sets.

Duffy's Sports Grill
With a fresh new location in Coconut Grove, Duffy's has ceaseless two-for-one drinks and plenty of TV screens. Enjoy classic sports bar snacks at this haunt that's all about anything involving a referee.

Sport Bar !!?????? No F* way !!!! I went to see a UFC fight and they charges $10...fine. They forget to order the fight connection comes on 30 minutes later. Should not be on the list.
