The Orlando Magic visit the Miami Heat to begin the last week of the regular season. After disappointing home losses, the Heat have put themselves at a slim chance to make the playoffs.

In fact, they need to win their final two games and have both Indiana and Brooklyn lose their final two games for Miami to make the 8th seed. Chances are slim, but it is still a chance.

And we believe when there is still a chance, the Heat are going to play to win. And that's exactly what you will see tonight as the team hosts the Orlando Magic who are ten games back of the Miami Heat. Last time the two teams met, it was an epic comeback by the Heat led by Henry Walker's clutch three point shots.

Here's your probable starters:

Elfrid Payton PG Goran Dragic
Victor Oladipo SG Dwyane Wade
Tobias Harris SF Luol Deng
Nikola Vucevic PF Udonis Haslem
Dewayne Dedmon C Hassan Whiteside

And here's the details on the game:
