HHH GameTime Preview: Heat (6-6) at Magic (6-8)

New, comment

Previewing the Heat's road game at Orlando.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday night, the Miami Heat (6-6) will be looking to avoid a fifth loss in six games while the Orlando Magic (6-8) are looking to build off a comeback victory.

Sure these Magic aren't the LA Clippers who opened a game with a punch Miami could never come back from, but don't underestimate these Magic either. They fought back from a 23-point deficit last night to beat the Hornets in Charlotte 105-100. The Magic won last night by playing a 3-guard lineup, something Coach Jacque Vaughn will probably do again tonight.

The only good news for the Heat that you could take from the last game was that Chris Bosh got out of his shooting slump, scoring 28 points against the Clippers.

Miami has won its last ten games against Orlando.

Who's playing..or not:

Norris Cole looks to be a game time decision due to his dislocated finger on his non-shooting hand. Cole has played in 160 straight games. Josh McRoberts and Dwyane Wade may also be game-time decisions.

Aaron Gordon (broken foot) is out for the Magic indefinitely

Who to watch for:

James Ennis may be the breakout player tonight because of the video you're about to see:

Probable Heat starters:

G - Mario Chalmers

G - Dwyane Wade

SF - Luol Deng

PF - Shawne Williams

C - Chris Bosh

Probable Magic starters:

G - Evan Fournier

SF - Tobias Harris

PF - Channing Frye

C - Nikola Vucevic
