NBA: Miami Heat at Orlando Magic Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat hit the road to face the in-state Orlando Magic for their third preseason game. Miami is coming off a big loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday, and hopes to find some better chemistry against the Magic.

Orlando is also 1-1 in the preseason, coming off a victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

This game should continue to see Erik Spoelstra look for different looks and more solid ball movement. The Heat, although mainly the same team as last year, are still looking to figure out what they truly are. The preseason is giving glimpses of a really good team, but also shows many flaws.
