Miami HEAT fans descended on Miami-Dade County Hall in Downtown Miami to support their team during the White Hot HEAT Pep Rally on Tuesday, May 15, 2012. Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, who chairs the Miami-Dade Sports Commission, presented a certificate to HEAT legends Alonso Mourning and Tim Hardaway, congratulating the team on winning the first round of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs.

The festivities included performances by the HEAT Dancers, the HEAT Street Band, contests, giveaways and more. HEAT mascot Burnie hyped up the crowd, who all wore white to show their support.

“HEAT fans have been coming out in full force as we take on the Indiana Pacers,” said Commissioner Diaz. “This is our year to make it to the Finals and win the championship!”
