The rest of the NBA schedule will come out later on Tuesday but this much we have learned (via Kevin Ding at the Orange County Register):
Lakers vs. Heat round two will be March 10 in Miami, a Thursday night game covered by TNT.
The first Lakers/Heat game will be Christmas Day at Staples Center. Smart money is these are two of the highest rated regular season games for the NBA since the Jordan era.
