It's the dawn of a new day in South Beach. The age of LeBron is over, and now the so-called "Jurassic" era begins, with Chris Bosh becoming the focal point of the team along with Dywane Wade. With the addition of some veteran pieces, the Heat will still be contenders in 2014-15. But there are five games that fans should be eagerly looking forward to.

Carmelo Anthony and the hated Knicks make their only appearance in Miami on Feb. 9. And just because LeBron is gone, don't think for a second that this won't be an all-out brawl.

This game lost some of its luster when Paul George went down for the season. But make no mistake, the Pacers will still get up for the Heat, and Miami will take it to the Pacers as well. The rivalry is still alive and well.

3. Oklahoma City Thunder, Jan. 20

The Heat visit the team that knocked them off in the Finals in June and caused the break-up of the big three. Expect Bosh and Wade to go extra hard in this Finals rematch against Duncan and the Spurs.
